How I Use It
We use Espark on a daily basis. The students look forward to earning their high fives. If a group of students is struggling in a particular area, we can do an Espark activity as a whole group. This helps students who haven't gotten to that skill, to be prepared for it. We also celebrate high fives each week with a treat!
My Take
I love Espark. My class has had the opportunity to help develop game ideas, and they love the quests. It works with students on their level of readiness. I can change their level if I need to. Occasionally, there may be a glitch in a game, but I can move the student forward so that they can continue in their quest. I then contact Espark and they are always eager to help resolve the issue!
