Game-based learning platform
Skooler users get free access to a brand new game-based learning platform for use in all subjects
Skooler has entered into a partner agreement with Wittario – a company that has developed a platform for outdoor learning games.
The key words are: outdoor movement, collaboration, play and learning.
The goal of Wittario is to use technology to provide even better learning – on the students’ terms. We know that a high degree of involvement improves learning outcomes. We also know that physical movement has a positive effect on brain activity. If we add increased student motivation by using game mechanics – then we have the three theoretical cornerstones of Wittario.
The solution allows teachers to easily and quickly create assignments that in turn can be sorted into thematic assignment collections. The assignment collections are designed to be shared, so there are great opportunities for collaboration between teachers and schools. The teacher places waypoints on a digital map and allocate a task to each of the waypoints. An even faster game setup is distance play. Here a distance is set and the tasks will be automatically distributed on the distance. In this way, games can be created no matter where the students are located. Classes can be divided into groups, or students can solve the assignments individually.
It is possible to provide additional information for each task in the form of internet content such as video, web pages, images, etc. That’s why Loops, also a Wittario and Skooler partner, is a brilliant complement when designing game content. Loops content can be easily used to create great learning games.
