Make your own games online!

You want to be a gamer? Create your own!

Mrs. Mounts has created a few accounts to allow her young people to express their creative ideas and reward each other through positive feedback and encouragement. With Sploder’s diverse set of game-making tools, members can discover many different ways to design game levels, make stories with narratives, and challenge themselves and their players.

Mrs. Mounts and Sploder believes that the world can be changed by creative people who use their minds to make the world better. By offering a place where people are rewarded for creativity in the context of games and play, we hope to point them toward a path to a more creative future.

Only you are finished with the objectives in Mrs. Mounts’ class,
you can ask for entrance to the world of creating you own games! The opportunities are endless!
Mrs. Mounts :-)

Khan Academy Tips

Khan Academy has a new look. It takes seconds to sign up for a new account, but you will love the results. This one is a must for the 21st century educator!

Here is just one example: We’re always discouraged when we hear about teachers who are using technology for technology’s sake. Instead, we want Khan Academy to help solve a real issue or need in your classroom.

Below are 5 common ways that teachers use Khan Academy:

Differentiation Foundation building Practice Absent students Test prep & review

Click on the purpose that most resonates for you, and you’ll get access to a short PDF file that helps you understand the different use cases, including Case Studies based on real teachers who have implemented KA successfully in their classrooms.

These and other tips will be housed on a page called “Khan Academy Tips” on our DC Blog.
