How I Use It
I would use this for a specific content area. Students are divided into teams and then they complete individual and group work. They can earn points by getting correct answers and helping classmates. They can lose points by being negative or not participating. The site allows teachers to customize the point system to what best fits their classroom.
I like this tool because it is custom to what will best fit each classroom and the students that are in it. The teacher can see what all the students are doing and there is even an option to have parents play along. This tool is great for individual work and student collaboration. It looks like a video game so student will be excited and engaged.
