How quest-based learning is improving student achievement | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

There is a common imperative given to teachers to leave no child behind. This alludes to getting all of our students to similar levels of proficiency by year’s end. But in a system that relies on a traditional linear grade book approach to learning, is ensuring that no child be left behind actually keeping them from accelerating their education? According to proponents of quest-based learning, the answer is yes.

The Knowledge Guru- e-learning games

The Knowledge Guru-  e-learning games | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

We start the design process for each game by defining learning objectives. Then, we find content and create the questions to drive learners to your desired outcomes. Each topic is represented as a “mountain” with three paths. Questions are worded differently on each path so users interact with the material multiple ways. And repetition helps them remember. Leaderboards, badges, points, and a robust admin side with plenty of tracking functionality make Knowledge Guru one of our personal favorite learning solutions.
