How you can still be part of the pilot this spring

How you can still be part of the pilot this spring

We’ve been getting several questions asking whether it is
too late to sign up for the pilot. The resounding answer is that
it’s
definitely NOT too late to join us for the spring play session
.  We’re eager to get as many teachers and
students playing as possible. The more people who play, the more we can learn
about the game! Here are a couple of additional common questions that have come
up lately:

How late in the year does the pilot go?  We’ll be collecting data from the game, the
assessments and doing classroom visits up through the end of June. Can’t start
using the game until late May or June? No problem. We’re still happy to have
you participate

What if I only have time do one quest line? That’s not a problem. We want
teachers to use the game as it fits in their classroom. While we’d love to have
students playing multiple quest lines, if you only have time to do one, you can
still take part.

Do you have any suggestions for how to incorporate the game
into the end of the school year? 
Absolutely. These are based on
ideas we’ve had from teachers about how they plan to try it out beyond standard
classroom and/or homework use.

  •        Half your class gone for state exams? Use Radix
    with the other students

  •        Students need some extra practice in certain
    areas leading up to finals? Use the corresponding quest lines to help give them
    extra practice

  •        Looking for something to do after AP/IB/final
    exams? Use the game as a way to continue to engage students with content

  •        Want to give students exposure to new topics or
    ideas that weren’t covered in this year’s curriculum? Pick out a few quest
    lines and let the game challenge students to learn something new

We encourage teachers to sign up for the pilot, give the
game a try and let us know all the unique ways that Radix can fit into existing
curriculum. As always, feel free to contact
radixhelp@mit.edu
with any questions.
