Using Legends of Learning To Enhance Or Review The Knowledge Of Students: Katie Burnham & Kerrie Bettes
Katie BurnhamAKA "Mrs. Burnham"
Katie Burnham flawlessly integrates Legends of Learning within her units to help students reach their maximum potential! Katie explains, “Legends of Learning is used to enhance or review the knowledge of students within a particular unit. Students can play particular games, then I can take a quick assessment to get an idea if they are understanding the material or not.”
By using Legends of Learning as a formative assessment tool for her students, Katie knows exactly where she needs to focus her reteaching. As a result, Katie says, “students’ test grades have increased by an entire letter grade! I have found that the majority of my students GREATLY enjoy playing the educational games that are assigned to them.”
Katie and her students share the same sentiment that many across the country also share, which is, “Legends of Learning makes learning FUN!”
Thank you, Katie, for making your classroom Legendary!
Kerrie BettesAKA "STEM Bettes"
Kerrie has been implementing Legends of Learning in her STEM classes for the past two years, mastering the art of gamifying across the curriculum! STEM Bettes explains, “As STEM Specialist at Sope Creek ES, I enrich science and math curriculum being taught in the classroom. Legends of Learning allows me to demonstrate to students how STEM and technology relate to the science and math they are learning.”
Recently, Kerrie used Legends of Learning to reinforce a science unit on acquired traits versus learned behaviors, during which her students found one of their favorite games on the site! “While learning about acquired traits and learned behaviors, students were truly engaged with the activities on Legends. Happu is their favorite activity because they are overcome with delight when their dogs finally have all their needs met.”
Thank you, Kerrie, for helping students make connections across all STEM-related fields. You are a true superhero!
