Lynnfield, MA (PRWEB) February 04, 2013
The biggest challenge for teachers today is not the new technology of digital learning, it is still the age-old problem of motivating students, confirmed by JogNog's ground-breaking survey of middle school teachers last year. From the results of this research, JogNog created the Digital Learning Day Challenge to motivate students with digital learning technology. By combining friendly competition with high-quality Common Core content, JogNog aims to make learning – a lot of learning – fun and substantial for the month of February. The school that learns the most wins!
The top three schools in the competition will win trophies and recognition on JogNog’s social media pages. Schools win by having their students answer the most questions correctly from the game’s library of 60,000 questions, all of which can be accessed free of charge on Digital Learning Day – February 6, 2013. Anyone can play by entering the code EKXAR7F into the search box on JogNog.com or JogNog's mobile apps. (Games played for free on Digital Learning Day remain free to the player even after the challenge concludes.) Questions for grades 2-8 cover the entire Common Core State Standards – from statistics to Shakespeare. Students will have until the end of February to complete the challenge and bring victory to their schools.
“We are continuously amazed to see how students react when a little friendly competition applied to learning. We are pleased to make all the games on JogNog free for Digital Learning Day,” said Stephen Smith, CEO and co-founder of JogNog.com. “This is a competition to see how much you can learn, not how much you know. Every school has a fair chance. Let the school that learns the most win!”
Digital Learning Day is a national campaign that celebrates teachers and shines a spotlight on successful instructional practice and effective use of technology in classrooms across the country. More information about Digital Learning Day can be found here: http://www.digitallearningday.org.
