Free Results Driven Gameplay from @MrNussbaum: Learning + Fun


“What apps do you recommend for the classroom?”  I am often presented with this question and have difficulty replying with a simple answer.  My view has always been that apps and games should be leveraged to enhance one’s learning, thus there isn’t a one size fits all answer.  If a colleague were to ask the similar question “What board games do you recommend” most teachers wouldn’t simply blurt out Monopoly or Yahtzee, they’d ask questions surrounding what the colleague’s expected outcomes were.  In the apps/computer gaming market, the same question should be asked: “What is the desired outcome?”

Greg Nussbaum, a teacher in Virginia is one of those who takes a good look at the desired outcomes before providing an answer.  Looking backwards from the expected results, he has created games and apps on his site Mr. Nussbaum, many of which were originally driven by projects his own students have done.  Take a look below to view a game created around his class’ project on the United States.



Featuring K-7 content in a variety of learning categories, Mr. N uses player interaction and culturally significant themes to bring the student into the learning experience.  Animal Idol, featured below, provides a unique spin on learning the finer details of the animal kingdom.  Be careful not to cross the judges, or “Simon Cow” may have some strong advice for you.


While Mr. Nussbaum additionally features some paid/premium products, the
vast majority of his offerings are free for students to utilize.  Mr. Nussbaum free site and adds includes access to gameplay on
math, science, history, geography, language arts, and many other
subjects.  Each subject has many sub-categories in which the user can choose from for more specific learning needs.

In addition to featuring a great free site, Mr. Nussbaum also offers a customizable premium service.  The premium upgrade allows a teacher to view all students results and supports assessment and communication with students.  Teachers can use templates to create games based upon their own class curriculum, or choose from existing games.

  1. In the online bargain world, it's simple to atom signs of louis vuitton replica counterfeit. An commodity in the New York Times, Did Ebay Start A Affected Crackdown? acclaimed that abounding auctions advancing from China, Japan and abounding East Asian countries are affected and not to be trusted. Even if the merchant offers the acquirement receipt, boxes and acceptance papers, it still may not be a accurate product. Packaging can be printed up actual calmly and cheaply, and sales block get awash all the time. The bigger brands adviser Ebay consistently for knock-off commodity through the Vero program. As a result, award a huge abatement on a absolute artist watch is about impossible. After all of these warnings, you may still ambition to buy a replica watch. However, it's apparently not the best idea. The money that you absorb on a affected can be bigger acclimated against a top superior alarm that will last. It's aswell accessible that the acquirement amount will abutment unauthorized, bent activity. After all, the aboriginal designers becoming annihilation from the purchase, which is not fair. Replica watches are generally accessible and can reflect abominably on the wearer. Rather than authoritative a acceptable impression, a replica watch generally looks tacky. Strive to acquirement top quality, 18-carat articles. Aside from my acquaintance with the lume, which I am abiding is very, actual rare, the capital drawbacks of this watch are as follows: the Valjoux 7750, although reliable and accurate, is of accepted finish. This is not annihilation to do with its performance, but it is a abashment that the appearance through the affectation case aback is not a bit added exciting. The http://www.replicahandbags2u.co.uk rotor weight has been busy with ELYSEE is logo, which is a abundant touch, but the movement is not as highly-finished as the brand is cheaper models but they do use Asian movements as against to Swiss. Secondly, the case, although high-sided and about robust, is alone baptize aggressive to 30 meters. For me, this is not a problem, as I never bathe or battery with a high-value automated watch on my wrist, but for some people, this could be an issue. Thirdly, the bottle is accustomed mineral as against to sapphire. I like an anti-reflective azure on my watches not just for accurate reasons, although it does help!. I am consistently abashed of abrading mineral crystals, but, on the additional side, they are consistently cheaper to alter than sapphires. So my admonition is, if you are traveling to accident it, accomplish abiding you accident it so abominably even a azure would accept shattered. That way you will feel absolutely acceptable about battery out for a replacement. Finally, and a lot of notably, in my opinion, the covering band is just not my cup of tea. I like perforated antagonism straps, I absolutely do, but the superior of this one is inferior to abounding added things on the market. The accepted catch bears the ELYSEE hawkeye logo, which is altogether dimensioned for the rolex replica job. The analysis section I was beatific had a apparent catch on it, so that is why I have not included any photographs of it.
