Teachers Gain a Cost-Effective and Entertaining Way for Students to Learn Challenging Standards-Based Content

JogNog enabled my students to learn information that made them more successful on their science MCAS exams.

Students at Revere Public Schools now have the opportunity to learn while playing competitive video games, thanks to the school system’s recent decision to begin using JogNog, the leading online learning game that helps students master standardized tests such as the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS).

Studies show that social gaming results in improved concept understanding, and JogNog applies this research to the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks for elementary and middle school. Available to individual students and teachers, as well as entire school systems, JogNog engages kids in building virtual cities by answering quiz questions in competition with their friends.

Revere Public Schools are located in Revere, Massachusetts, approximately five miles northeast of Boston. To improve learning and retention, several Revere teachers are encouraging their students to use JogNog at home to reinforce key concepts covered in school.

“It is a testament to the Revere Public Schools for recognizing the huge positive impact learning games can have on MCAS preparation,” said Stephen Smith, CEO and cofounder of JogNog.com. “It brings the success that early-adopting parents and teachers have experienced with their students on JogNog to a wider audience.”

“JogNog enabled my students to learn information that made them more successful on their science MCAS exams,” commented Roxanne Campbell, a physical science teacher at Garfield Middle School in Revere.

To help the local community, JogNog offers all the available test preparation questions for the MCAS tests at no cost to students and teachers at http://www.JogNog.com/press/MCAS.html.
