How I Use It
Our entire sixth and seventh grade used Digital Compass. We used it as a fun way to supplement the digital citizenship curriculum and lessons from our unit. Students loved using Digital Compass and came in asking to play it every single day once they had been in there. I can't wait to use it again. We plan to use it throughout the year as a reminder of the knowledge and skills gained during our units in online safety and responsibility. We had several students using the game on each computer. Occasionally, the game wouldn't load. We are unsure if it's a memory issue or was caused by an update in the game or the machine itself.
My Take
I love it! I like the fact that students can choose their own story to go through each time the login to play. Some teachers dictated which story the class would go through each day. I did not and students appreciated that. It served students well to give us more scenarios to discuss in class and also support the teaching and learning happening during our units.
