Great Scott! Look at what they're saying!
Get the scoop from real teachers, principals, and superintendents
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!
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!
The responsiveness of the support makes all the difference. It is one of the great things about LoL. Baby steps, ease of use, and ongoing support. That is how you get teachers to use tech.
It warmed my heart to see students who struggle with traditional learning methods blossom under the opportunity to learn through simulation. Students that rarely verbally/physically participate in class were out of their seats, volunteering to help guide classmates. If you haven't checked out these games yet, please do!
I've been out of school recovering from breast cancer surgery and am doing well. I'm glad I found you!
Cancer tries to steal as much from you as it can. I'm not going to let it do that.
That's just one more thing Legends of Learning does well - helping me fight the fight by allowing me to be the person I was before as I go through this battle.
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!
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!
Tuesday afternoon [at the end of ISTE] had me all in the feels of my separation. It was an honor to be a part of something that has transformed me as an educator.
It's easy to figure out how to play (intuitive), but the questions are just right — challenging but not too hard, and definitely not too easy.
My students loved the games!!! I am currently doing summer school and I am also able to use the games. The students don't seem to realize that they are actually learning about Science!!!
The students have so much fun playing the games, yet they forget that they are being "tested". They just jumped right in. I love that they also collaborate and are engaged with each other. They give tips and suggestions for other students who are struggling at a certain level and help them advance to the next levels. I love that I am able to collect data on the questions to see where they are still struggling or which ideas they are proficient at.
Finally got to use it in my room! THE CLASS IS DEAD SILENT AND ACTIVELY PLAYING. I AM IN LOVE!
My favorite game so far is "Caveman Joe and the Conservation of Energy." Kids loved the game. In fact, they liked the game so much that if they had "free play" time they went back to play "Caveman Joe" again. I love how I can see the entire process unfold with this game. From first playing the game and chatting with the developer; all the way through kids playing the game and reacting.
I made it to the end! (Well, mostly. Teacher work day tomorrow.) Oh my word. I worried if I'd make it a few times this year. I think LoL, no, I know, LoL saved my sanity this year! I look forward to making it part of my curriculum next year.
I teach in a low-income, high ELL population. I am so excited to test these games. I have tried the genetics and heredity games with my students so far and had one of my struggling students say "I'm not leaving until I reach the next level" as he was playing and the bell was ringing. Can't say how awesome that was to hear!! Thank you Legends of Learning. This is the best addition to my curriculum!!
I'm having fun playing the games during lunch; it is really relaxing most of the time. I almost feel guilty...NOT...it's work :) It's really helping me decide which ones are best for my topics.
