Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Tech It Up Tuesday: Jeopardy Labs


Tech It Up Tuesday

Here it is: Tuesday again—which means it’s time for the next installment of “Tech It Up Tuesday”, a series devoted to sharing an edtech tool, app, site or other resource that can be utilized in the classroom setting.

This week’s tech-isode takes us back in the day to an oldie but goody: Jeopardy Labs, a free online service that allows users to create customized jeopardy game boards without the use of PowerPoint. Once completed, your game is assigned a unique URL—one that can be posted on a blog, wiki or web site so it can be accessed by anyone with the link.

So, here’s how it rolls: There are no fees and registration associated with utilizing Jeopardy Labs nor is an account required; however, in order to be able to edit a template at a later date, the tool does necessitate the creation of a password. After one is entered via the Quick Build mode, you’re ready to roll. It’s just that simple!

Just so you know: All jeopardy templates submitted become available on the public domain (i.e. can be found on Google) unless you’re a Jeopardy Labs member. Choosing this option does require an account as well as a $20 fee which includes a lifetime membership of access to pimped out templates, privacy controls and a public list of all templates generated.

Not interested in building your own jeopardy templates? Well, that’s cool too. You can also browse the site for additional jeopardy templates created by other contributors. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Classroom Connection:

Students generally find studying to be more enjoyable—OK, tolerable—when they can do it via an interactive game format. That said, Jeopardy Labs provides a way for teachers to create review games that students can play independently or in a whole class setting.

Also, as summer vacation is rapidly approaching, this cool tool would be a great resource to use for a final exam review. Or just incorporate it as a fun learning activity to wrap things up for the year.
