New on GameUp: Digital Compass

Posted by jglassman on

Navigating our 21st century digital world can be confusing! To help students make good decisions online we are excited to announce the launch of Digital Compass, the latest addition to GameUp by our highly-esteemed, award-winning partner Common Sense Education. Using the popular choose-your-own path format, Digital Compass invites students to take on the role of different characters who are facing digital dilemmas to learn the fundamentals of digital citizenship. The varied story paths and multiple decision points allows for repeated play to see the effects of alternative courses of action.

For My BrainPOP users, Digital Compass comes with the SnapThought® tool. This tool enables students to write about their thinking while they play. For more tips and ideas on using Digital Compass in your classroom, explore our Lesson Ideas page.
