Leveraging Learning: ipads in Primary Grades

What looks like a game, sounds like a game, feels like a game but isn’t a game? Skoolbo! The creator of this app, who presented at LL2013 in Auburn this week, had me hooked from the get-go. He drew from game theory in designing this adventurous romp through core skills in numeracy and literacy, and unabashedly admitted to wanting to glamorize learning! I’ve downloaded the free app, and set up my students for the algorithmically arranged tasks. The option to choose and set tasks individually to differentiate is only a click away. A free “Fan Club” app exists as well so Grandma can play along from Florida! My avatar looks just like me, and I’m eagerly awaiting the delivery of minis! Game on!

    Karla, your students were literally dancing with excitement when they came in and showed me their avatars on Skoolbo! I am so impressed that you took what you learned at the conference and brought it back to the kids right away… and I am looking forward to learning more about how Skoolbo works.
