How I Use It
I use Legends of Learning a lot in my station rotations and as an exit ticket. I enjoy having a technology station available as an option for students. I can set up a Legends of Learning playlist to run for the 2-3 days that kids are rotating through my station activities. It's great because it reinforces what they are learning in other stations, but in a super engaging way.
I also like that Legends allows me to add some flare to my exit tickets. Instead of students groaning about answering questions, they get to do it in a battle format with their Avatars. Even better, I don't have to grade the exit tickets after because I get all the data, graded and ready to go!
Kids love playing games, that's what they do at home all the time! So, why not have them play a game in class that relates to what I'm teaching?!?! If only something like this could have been available when I was in school. Test and quiz scores are rising, students are asking to play (and therefore learn), and it only takes a matter of minutes to set up...a win all around in my book!
