How I Use It
I usually use this for reviewing material for a test, or practicing material we just learned. I use it about every other week, but my students ask for it regularly.
My students love it and ask for it and it literally engages every single student... even those who usually choose not to participate at all! I have never met a teacher that didn't love this game. The swapping opportunities and other game tricks are great because anyone can win... there is a chance factor, which is motivating to kids that would otherwise never win a game. I can't say enough good about this game. I love the power of engagement. I don't know any teachers that use it that don't love it, which is why I was surprised to see a negative review. Those of us who use it don't spread the word sometimes because it might not be as fun if every teacher used it! Also, it is super easy to set up a game and does not require any personal information from students or signing into an account to use it. It takes about 90 seconds to get a game started and everyone in! It is very competitive and everyone gets involved. Also, there are several different games to choose from. You can also assign solo games for homework. Not all the games have luck factors, the racing game is just a race to see who can answer a certain number of questions correctly.
