UPDATE ANNOUNCEMENT As of Back-to-School 2018, Digital Passport is getting a much-needed facelift, making the game more accessible and easier for teachers and students to use. We’ve received a lot of feedback about Digital Passport, and we think you’ll be happy with the changes!
Some new features you can look forward to in the update:
- No more Flash! The game will be built on HTML5, which will solve a lot of technical issues for users.
- Better accessibility features including text-to-speech capabilities and a Spanish version of the game.
- Google Classroom integration.
- New sign-up process for students will eliminate the need for teachers to create student accounts. Users will create a generic username in order to save their gameplay on the local device. Data is stored locally and can be reset by clearing out the device’s cache.
More than 350,000 passports awarded!
