Academic Enrichment & Review Game Shows that Light a Spark
Review Common Core skill and content competencies in a fun and interactive, expert-led game environment with just a hint of playful competition among fellow students. It’s like going to the gym for your brain! An engaging way to develop a love of learning new things. Topics include: Math, English, Science, and History. Individual and whole-group options available.
Ideal for: Just about everybody! Seriously though, we find that our content-driven game shows support all students, from those struggling to close a learning gap to those who want to geek out with fellow brainiacs.
How are we different from other programs?
The Internet abounds with gamified content for kids, but it’s unsupervised with inconsistent quality control. Brain Games is 100% educator-moderated, taking place in real time and strategically customized for desired content outcomes and skill acquisition. Sessions are live (synchronous) and virtual, making this an accessible and highly engaging option for content review, closing learning gaps, test prep, and other learning activities! Brain Games also allows students a safe and supportive environment to make new friends, practice social skills, and have fun with classmates from school.
Benefits of Brain Games
1. Healthy competition. We create optimum supervised space for friendly competition, for both kids who approach competition with gusto and kids who are still developing confidence.
2. Lively and interesting environment. Students work with energetic educators in a dynamic activity that emphasizes and rewards curiosity, teamwork, and focus.
3. Targeted review. Students actively review topics, concepts, and vocabulary in a fun and challenging space, ditching mindless “drill and kill” forever.
4. Improve memory. Revisiting prior knowledge and practicing skill sets creates stronger brain pathways to support long-term memory.
5. Foster social connections. Students can meet new friends, strengthen existing friendships, and benefit from engaging with a friendly education expert in a safe, structured environment.
The Smithsonian Science Education Center reports that a game-structured learning environment aids in adolescent cognitive development, aids in physical development (yes, really!), increases classroom engagement, and increases accessibility for learners.
