Differentiating Instruction with Content-Aligned Games: Seth Matthews
Seth MatthewsAKA "Sportspro Master"
Teacher – Westmont Hilltop Elementary School, PA
Health and physical education teacher Seth Matthews, AKA Sportspro Master, introduces concepts using multiple representations in order to meet the diverse learning styles of his students. Sportspro Master strives to ensure that students grasp course content rather than merely memorize facts. With Legends of Learning, Sportspro Master helps students to explore the different systems of the human body and their functions: “I enjoy using Legends as a virtual learning tool based on what we are learning in class. It gives the students a reinforcement and a different aspect of what we are covering in class.”
The onset of hybrid learning initially challenged Sportspro Master—He wanted to ensure that students possessed the same level of engagement in his virtual classes as they did in person. Given the unprecedented circumstances, Sportspro Master diligently sought out learning resources that would foster high student morale in both a remote and in-person environment. Legends of Learning empowered Sportspro Master to achieve his goal of enriching his courses for maximum student engagement, regardless of the learning environment: “Legends has been a useful tool for the virtual learning that has been brought upon us. Students enjoy the lessons and activities from home that have covered concepts that we cover in-person. This gives us another tool and activity to reinforce topics.”
Sportspro Master, we admire how you are personalizing learning for your students. Best of luck this school year!
