An Educator Reviews Arcademic Skill Builders
Hereâ€™s what Bob Sprankle, a multi-age teacher in Wells, ME and the schoolâ€™s Technology Integrator, wrote in his â€œGeek for the Weekâ€ review for hotchalk.com:
â€œAnyone whoâ€™s witnessed a child playing a video game has seen the intense focus and commitment to breaking through to the next level or beating a previous score. Aligning the joy of gaming with something tedious like practicing math facts clearly helps transform the experience and invites students to learn in an environment they are not only comfortable with but would seek out given the choice.
â€œAfter introducing my first grade students to the Jet Ski Addition game at Arcademic, many recounted how they continued using the site for up to 2 hours on a Saturday to continue playing the game. What does that mean? That means that on a Saturday, first graders practiced their addition facts for 2 hours at home without anyone making them do it. In all my years of teaching, Iâ€™ve never heard of such a thing!
â€œI asked students to tell me how they could get better at subtraction or division. â€™Play the games!â€™ they told me.â€
