Carlisle Public Schools of Carlisle, Massachusetts were triumphant in JogNog's Digital Learning Day competition, answering 44,496 questions correctly in a neck and neck competition with over 280 schools across the country, from Florida to California. Norwell Middle School of Norwell, Massachusetts reached second place with 43,226 answers, followed by Keys Gate Charter School of Homestead, Florida with 37,142 answers.
The JogNog Digital Learning Day Challenge was designed to motivate students to learn with digital learning technology. By combining friendly competition with high-quality Common Core content, JogNog makes learning – a lot of learning – fun and challenging. The school that answered the most questions correctly during the month of February was declared the winner, and the top three placing schools all won a trophy.
“Carlisle, Massachusetts turned in an impressive performance,” said Stephen Smith, CEO and co-founder of JogNog.com. “They conquered topics ranging from elementary algebra to details about Shakespeare, answering more questions correctly than any other school. The competition was a fun battle among the top 10 right up until the close of the contest, with some schools answering over 4,000 questions on the last day. And they needed to or they would have lost their place! All the top 10 schools were battling it out until the very end.”
“My students were having such a fun time advancing up levels in JogNog!” said Kelly Shaw, teacher at Key’s Gate Charter School. “The competition was awesome. It motivated all our students to focus on learning!”
