Hello Teachers and Homeschoolers!
As part of our game licensing, we at 7 Generation Games have lesson resources for you – PowerPoint presentations, lesson plans, curriculum building tools, etc. – that can be used to reinforce remote learning, a necessity during this odd, new normal.
It’s up to you to use these resources. Our research to date has shown that the math scores of students who played our game improved over the control group (non-game players), regardless of a teacher’s decision to integrate our supplemental resources (over an eight-week period).
However, in instances where the teachers do draw from our supplied materials in conjunction with the game, their students’ scores have risen even higher.
Our games track each student’s progress as they advance through the game levels. This progress is charted online for you as individual or group formative assessment. Our games support recall, math literacy, skill application, and analysis. Our games can help you deliver appropriate remote instruction to close achievement gaps, empower students, and instill a love for learning.
We feel that practice and good study habits are their own rewards. Students who develop these valuable skills and habits now have a stronger chance at succeeding in their high school and college years, and we agree that it’s crucial to build those skills now, with technology as a medium.
We’re also aware of the impact marginalization has upon many rural communities. We are focused on closing the digital divide. We acknowledge indigenous and Latino ongoing efforts to reclaim their people’s long histories, traditions, and unique narratives.
Our resources can help you optimize and differentiate your math lessons to scaffold lessons and target achievement dips in specific areas while building literacy, problem-solving skills, and supporting STEM distance learning with games.
