Class Tech Tips: Gamify Student Learning with Common Core Quest

If you’re looking for a way to engage students with Common Core content you’ll want to check out Common Core Quest (opens in new tab). Students are awarded ribbons for each Common Core Math and English Language Arts standard when they pass a level. If a student doesn’t demonstrate mastery they are directed to specific resources, like videos and games, to help them practice the skills they need to succeed at each level.

With a personalized learning plan for each student in your class, kids can work at their own level as they master content. Teachers have access to data to help plan interventions and direct their instruction. By earning badges and ribbons for successfully completing each level, student engagement and motivation is sure to increase inside and outside of your classroom. Common Core Quest is great for supporting struggling students and providing enrichment opportunities for children working above grade level. Created by OpenEd, this app gives students and teachers access to high quality learning materials.
