Impacts of Remote Learning
The data reveals both students and teachers are struggling to adapt to the challenges of remote learning.
Education & Ed Tech Growing Together
When education technology fails to deliver expected results both educators and platforms are quick to point the finger at one another.
Remote Learning Poses New Challenges for Educators Looking to Engage Students
Remote learning presents a series of challenges for teachers ranging from students' technology access to engagement. Teachers face burnout at alarming rates as they carry the brunt of responsibility for students' learning both in the classroom and remotely.
Gamification: Potential or Pain Point?
Gamification has been incorporated into classrooms across the world often in the form of online trivia or quizzes. When implemented properly these games are proven to improve student learning. Unfortunately, gamification has struggled to find its home as a complement to remote learning.
Many education technology platforms lack a convenient and familiar way to load lessons into their platform. This discourages educators from using the platform due to the amount of time configuration will take.
How is Hooky different?
Teacher created content that goes beyond online quizzes and trivia games.
Teachers control the content ensuring the information provided to the students is relevant and accurate.
Teachers can create game content based on an input form allowing dynamic education content to be created faster than a PowerPoint presentation.
Role-playing games integrate lesson plans to immerse students in an interactive and educational narrative based on the content entered by their teacher.
Easy Input For Teachers
Hooky allows teachers to enter their lesson plans through a dynamic web form enabling them to quickly create games that are relevant to classroom instruction. Below is an early concept of how the input form would look.
