Hey, edtech gurus! It’s Tuesday again and time to focus on another resource that can be utilized to tech out your classroom. This week’s focus is on fun and free educational games for students in Grades 1-6.
In case you’ve never met before, here’s introducing Arcademic Skill Builders—a web site that can be used to boost basic math, language arts, vocabulary and thinking skills via research-based and standards-aligned arcade style games.
The basic games located within the Arcademic Skill Builders resource are free to play without the need to login or create an account. However, a Plus package—which includes data reports, custom game content and video lessons—is also available for purchase.
Of the 60+ activities available for use, the majority of them are multiplayer games, although some are geared toward single players as well. Several of the games are even enabled for play using a Nintendo Wii remote. How ’bout that as an option!
Here’s a screenshot of the interface to pique your interest:
As the tagline suggests Academics + Arcade = Fun. Hence, the name of the site: Arcademics. That said, use this really cool blend of online games and key educational skills to engage, motivate and teach students math and language arts skills.
