CodeMonkey provides practice coding with a real programming language to solve a variety of puzzles. The game’s developers have worked hard to make the puzzles accessible and provide the right guidance at the right time. But parents should expect kids to get stuck, requiring some encouragement and, depending on their age and ability, some help to get past some of the more challenging levels. There’s no offensive content to be found on the site or in the puzzles, so parents can focus on helping their kids learn how to code.

Gimkit is a game-based program that teachers can use as a fun way to engage with students and mix the way they review content. Use GimkitLive and GimkitInk for quiz reviews, team building, ice breakers, and more! Students love it and teachers can create their own classes and assignments with many customizable options. GimkitLive is a game show that your student will “beg to play” and it doesn’t just have to be used in class. You can also assign it as homework and it will grade the assignments for you automatically! GimkitInk allows students to create posts and share them with not just you, but each other. By publishing work, it creates a place where students can learn from their peers. With Ink, you can bring Desmos Graphs, Google Spreadsheets, Youtube Videos, and more right into your post. When a student publishes a post, they can decide to have their name hidden from other students. Plus, they can take things one step further by keeping their post just between you two. However comfortable a student feels – they decide. 

“When you put it all together — publishing student work, new ways to express and communicate, sharing without sharing who you are, and a place to learn from others — it’s truly something special.”

Recent advances in brain imaging measures provide us with new information about the reading processes taking place within the brain. As scientists research how different interventions and instruction actually change the brains of students, teachers can learn to apply information from evidence-based approaches within their classrooms.
