Now that teachers know the basics of assigning games and assessments to students, it’s time to learn about the instructional practices that allow for intentional use of our educational games. Teachers will be introduced to four instructional best practices and will be provided hands-on time to develop assignments that implement one of the best practices discussed.

Teachers have assigned games in Legends of Learning, so what’s next? During this session, teachers will review how to analyze student progress and performance on assignments, learn about our enhanced standards-based performance reports, and receive tips on next steps based on the data teachers see in their accounts. Using Legends of Learning data, teachers can make meaningful decisions about their next steps with students! NOTE: This advanced PD opportunity is available for district-level licenses only.
- State Assessment Prep with Legends of Learning: In this session, teachers will explore the variety of tools on Legends of Learning that they can use to support their students in preparation for the state assessment.

After exploring our features for assessment prep, teachers will be given hands-on time to create resources to use with their students.
