We've just created a brand new learning based game, called 'Quiz-ly Bears' and would love to hear your thoughts on our efforts and energies!
This decision came in response to an overwhelming demand from educators for a game that allows them to add their own questions and answers. By making 'Quiz-ly Bears' a multiple-choice learning game, educators have complete control over which answers are presented to their students.
We've spent the last few weeks testing the game in schools around the Hackney and Old Street areas of London, and found some interesting results:
- Teachers saw it as a great way to personalise the questions they write and adjust them for each individual class - as well as generate competition within the classroom. (Games created and questions set, range from home economics to space exploration!).
- Students responded positively to seeing questions that they knew their teachers had written for them - and displayed a healthy competitiveness in wanting to outscore their classmates. Students also felt the brand, character and tone of the game was right (but the older kids wanted less 'Goldilocks' and more 'Grizzlier Bears'!)
