How I Use It
We are using Bloxels for storytelling. Students create a story map and translate it into a video game. The hands on creation brings characters, settings, and problems to life in a language that our students love (video games).
The app is free and the boards are not expensive. We purchased a classroom pack so that students can create directly on the app or by manipulating the pieces. I really appreciate how the company responds quickly to questions on twitter as well as the tutorial videos as I am not an expert on the app. Our students love this new tool and we hope to expand the use into other academic areas.
