Project-Based Resources

With many schools adopting a virtual or hybrid plan this summer, students are missing out on the opportunity to engage in hands-on STEM experiences with their friends and classmates. To help fill this void, and encourage learning, computational thinking, and fellowship, Legends of Learning has created a variety of project-based activities for students to complete independently or with their friends.

I have been utilizing Legends of Learning for a few years. I absolutely love this resource. I assign playlist as part of homework to reinforce lessons for students. I currently have a playlist for summer reinforcement of skills. This resource was incredibly useful during the pandemic to keep students engaged.

The scores on our Science SBAC test went up by 8% last year. I only had the students from January until April. I had them on Legends of Learning as much as I possibly could. I attribute the increase in scores to the content from this site!

My seventh-grade students loved legends of learning! I love seeing them so engaged in science games especially since they are learning or reviewing knowledge with every game. There are so many games for each standard and so many different types of games that each student always finds at least one they like. One of the best features is being able to see who is online and how far they have gotten it is a great way to check their progress and engagement!

Last year I had a 90% pass rate and this year we improved to 92%. What makes this data even more amazing is we have a large population of special ed students on my team this year and last year we had none! The biggest jump was in my pass advanced rate - it increased from 38% to 41% and 12 students had perfect scores! 15 of my students have IEPs and all of them passed the test. Our building went up from 87% pass to 91% in fifth grade. I think the numbers are amazing with our large special ed population!

I believe a lot of it is due to the work students did in LOL throughout the year to help review and reinforce 4th and 5th grade material.

I am happy to say the least.

Legends of Learning games provide a great opportunity for students to learn about content. I have used it as an incentive tool to supplement instruction after students have completed an activity. This has eliminated down time in my classroom. Students are engaged, motivated to complete assignments, and even play on their own time!

I had a class where some of my students have intellectual disabilities. My students with intellectual disabilities all passed the end of year state standardized exam. I am convinced it was because of their engagement with the content and they were made to feel familiar with the vocab related to these standards through the games. Mahalo!

My students love the interaction of games and content! Students were so engrossed in what they were doing, one teacher thought we weren’t in the room!!

So excited that we are rolling out Legends of Learning today with students! They are loving it! We were all so engaged that we missed the school bell and my partner teacher had to ask when we were switching classes because we did not even hear the bell!

I applaud Legends of Learning for their openness and interest in hearing from teachers. The new features reflect things I was thinking would be great to have - the ability to begin your session where you last left off, searchable playlist and the teachers top ten list is great!

The Benefits of Game-based Learning

Engagement

Legends of Learning has a dramatic impact on student learning, especially for those who struggle or become disengaged at home or in the normal classroom setting. Engaged learning through interactive play means faster lesson comprehension, reducing time to content mastery by weeks.

Results

Games give students a connection making topics more exciting and leading to test score improvements of over 1/2 half a letter grade on average. Check out the research from Vanderbilt University. Robust reports give teachers the ability to find places for improvement. Lesson plans give details on incorporating games into units.

Choice

Students have agency to make choices within teacher guided boundaries. Students can take risks without being penalized. Games present risks as safe challenges to overcome, helping students to better retain information while offering an engaging way to meet learning outcomes.
