Educational Tools to Level Up your lessons

Welcome to 7 Generation Games!

On this page, you’ll find the links and resources mentioned by Maria Burns Ortiz to help you transition from a traditional class to a digital and engaging teaching experience for you and your students. If you have any questions about game design or ways to integrate video games into your classroom please feel free to send us an email at info@7generationgames or directly to Maria at we’re here to help you.



Tools you can use to Level Up your class

1. Match the Memory

Play a fun, free memory matching game in your web browser (on any platform, including Mac, Linux, iOs, and Android). Make a custom memory game for free using your own pictures, videos, events, and links.

2. Puzzle Fast

PuzzleFast Instant Puzzle Maker is a truly useful web application for teachers. It’s a breeze to use, and it’s free! Oftentimes, textbook publishers provide handouts that are dull or not challenging enough. Teachers are left with the options of a) making do with handouts that obviously miss the mark or b) putting a lot of effort into making ones that work.

With PuzzleFast, teachers can create custom word puzzles — as easy or difficult as desired — in just minutes, using whatever vocabulary is lesson-relevant.

3. Purpose Games

PurposeGames lets you create and play games. Students, teachers, and rockstars alike all come here to create and learn.

4. Jeopardy Labs

JeopardyLabs allows you to create a customized jeopardy template without PowerPoint. The games you make can be played online from anywhere in the world. Building your own jeopardy template easy. Just use our simple editor to get your game up and running.
