WHY GAME-BASED LEARNING?
Game-based learning provides practice and mastery through repetition! These game-based learning activities allow the students to master the structure of the game while the math and literacy skills change to match your scope and sequence or differentiation needs. Research shows students have an extended time and engagement on task and takes the students to an active learning state instead of passive learning state… OH! And GAMES ARE FUN!
