Social Studies Gamification
Gamification provides opportunities for:
- student engagement and collaboration;
- timely and actionable feedback; and
- deeper understanding of key ideas and concepts.
Gamification with TCI
Each TCI lesson includes a lesson game that can be used to review key ideas and events. The game can be projected by the teacher for class use, or assigned for students to play independently. The lesson games are autograded and teachers can track trends in student responses.
Gamification with Gimkit
Gimkit provides fast-paced gameplay that requires knowledge, collaboration, and strategy to win. Students earn virtual currency, which they can "invest" during the game to boost their score. Games can be played live or can be assigned as independent practice. Students can compete against each other or collaborate in teams or as a whole class. When teachers launch the game, they choose from a variety of play modes.
