How I Use It
I usually create a quest line that covers an event in history, for example, the Civil War. Then the students complete the quests which cover many of the aspect of the war. Once they complete the quests they earn XP points and level up and earn a badge. As the teacher you can make your quests or clone quests (over 20,000) from the armory.
My Take
What I like best about this project 1. Students can learn anywhere there is Internet 2. They have multiple opportunities to get the correct answer 3. If they submit the wrong answer I can send it back for corrections 4. They learn that getting something wrong the first is not a bad thing 5. They learn instead perseverance The mechanics of 3D GameLab is their platform allows you to build your own quests, ranks,rewards, and keeps track of all the XP points for up to 175 students on their individual player cards.
