ISTE 2012: We’re Game

WowzerWhenever learning becomes fun, it goes down easier and has a better chance of sticking. With that in mind Wowsers has a series of online educational games for third through fifth graders. The games are story-driven with lots of lessons, activities, assessments and printable assignments. Each kid gets his or her own avatar to interact with online and kids can accumulate milestone coins. At the moment, it’s limited to math curriculum and the company will add science and English curriculum over the next couple of years. The program costs about $25 per student, up to $7,000 per school and there’s a free trial to try it out.
