NJ School District Implements Personalized, Game-Based Learning
Mount Holly Township Public Schools in New Jersey has implemented a new, personalized, game-based learning solution from Fuel Education for students in grades 3–8.
Stride, available through FuelEd’s PEAK personalized learning platform, encourages “gaming to learn,” according to the company website. The solution includes short games that aim to motivate students and provide short “brain breaks” to energize learning. Longer games are also available, for more immersive learning experiences.
Mount Holly Township teachers are using Stride to assign students classwork and homework modules for math, language arts, reading and science classes.
Jim DiDonato, superintendent, said that there was already an increase in students meeting grade-level PARCC standards for ELA and math from the 2014-15 to 2015-16 school year.
“Stride’s adaptive content is aligned to national and state standards so we believe this will help our students prepare that much more for this year’s PARCC testing,” DiDonato said in a statement. “We’re always trying to make our students and our schools more successful.”
