Teaching Reaction Times with Minecraft
Minecraft Club has come to Legacy Academy. We are happy to join the many great schools around the world that are using this powerful creative tool to teach a wide variety of topics. We hope that we will be able to create a fun after school club where students have time to explore and create new worlds, work together, discover science concepts and learn powerful computer skills. It is a really great time!
The video above is an example from an educator in Australia is using technology to change the way students are learning. The environment is engaging and it allows the educator opportunities that previous generations just didn't have access to. We are excited about the future possibilities of this type of technology!
Salman Khan on Khan Academy
There are thousands of excellent tools that Legacy Academy students have full time access to using their iPad 2 devices. Khan Academy is one of those tools that we use at our iSchool everyday. It is not our main curriculum, but it does an amazing job helping us identify gaps in instruction that need to be worked on. Students in Algebra for example might have some weaker basic math skills as an example. Using Khan Academy we are able to identify those weaknesses and build a program that will help the student get back to the basics.
Coming soon to classes in Legacy Academy! ClassDojo is a classroom tool that helps teachers improve behavior and engagement in their classrooms quickly and easily. It also captures and generates data on behavior that teachers can share with parents and administrators.
