TeacherGaming Desk Is Your Ready To Go Toolbox Filled With Fun Educational Games For Your Classroom
To be an effective teacher you need to have the best tools in your arsenal at your disposal. Technology has paved the way for games based learning but for many teachers it’s hard to figure out. If you were to do a Google for educational games you would come back with millions of results. Having to pick through, curate and then develop a lesson around those games could take years.
Luckily Finnish startup TeacherGaming has created the TeacherGaming Desk, a classroom gaming toolbox that helps anyone teach anything with games. More and more research has shown that games based learning is one of the most engaging ways of teaching students of all ages.
The team of teachers behind TeacherGaming has filled the TeacherGaming Desk with three important tools:
- Genius Games. Engage your students with brilliant k-12 teaching games already being enjoyed by 120 million students globally. (remember Finland is the country that brought us Angry Birds so they know a thing or two about engaging games).
- Clever Materials. This section of the toolbox arms teachers with the lesson plans, tips and instructional ideas around the games.
- Smart Analytics. The teacher dashboard allows teachers to track their students’ progress through real time analytics.
The TeacherGaming Desk offers mobile and desktop games, making it the perfect platform regardless of the amount of devices in your classroom. If your students are playing on tablets perfect, in the computer lab, that works too.
The content catalog for TeacherGaming Desk features games across science, math, language arts, reading, chemistry, history, art and more. They even have games for teaching students important life skills.
TeacherGaming Desk is so confident in their platform that any teacher can sign up for a free trial sans credit card information. The trial will get you 10 free games and their accompanying lesson plans, no strings attached.
You can meet the team behind TeacherGaming Desk at FETC 2018 in Orlando Florida, January 23-26th, booth #1159H and you can check them out online at teachergaming.com
