Are your students engaged? Do they have fun learning? Are they looking forward to coming to class every day?
Sadly, most students today are not as engaged as they could be. They spend too much time memorizing facts and too little time writing and creating. We’ve created Avatar Storytellers to bring back the fun to learning.
Avatar Storytellers is a 3D immersive education and game-based learning curriculum for ages 9-12. It is engaging and creative, and supports learning in the classroom or in a computer lab. It is based on visual arts and on technology standards.
More than anything, we want to make learning fun. Our educational content emphasizes creativity, independent thinking, and giving students a voice as part of the learning process. This is the exact opposite of the standardized testing approach to learning, an approach which focuses more on memorizing facts for multiple choice tests and less on creating.
Unlike memorizing facts, learning through technology and the arts improves students’ critical thinking, problem posing, problem solving and decision making skills. It regularly engages multiple skills and abilities including communication skills, manipulation and interpretation.
Avatar Storytellers creates an exciting and fun virtual world for learning. It is engaging and motivating for all students and absolutely wonderful for students who are naturally creative, visual learners (the same students who have a hard time in a traditional learning environment).
Students get to create 3D interactive digital stories, create their own custom 3D avatars, and – most importantly – they have that sparkle in their eyes when they talk about their work, a sparkle that teachers today rarely get to see.
