Make It a Double #edtech

As promised, Friday Fun Night will be a double post to make up for last weeks missed post.  Let's start with a site called Academic Skill Builders.  With games related to Math, Geography and Language Arts, Academic Skill Builders takes educational gaming to a different level.  As a registered user you can track your progress.  But more importantly Academic Skill Builders, takes a unique approach to educational gaming.  These are standards based games.  Yes, you read that right!  And you can find out more about their pilot study here.  In addition to tracking progress, you can customize gaming assignments and earn achievements.  I highly recommend you visit this site to discover just how impressive gaming tied to standards can be.
