Virtual Worlds, Real Learning

This past week many of our intermediate students participated in a group activity in Penticton using Quest Atlantis. Students have been 'luminating' in their own particular area of social responsibility in the online game and spent the morning helping each other and learning about community reviews. Quest Atlantis, an online educational game that incorporates protagonist play allows students to explore curricular areas while learning about areas of social responsibility. This gathering brought the Youlearn questers together to solve problems. It was an exciting couple of hours as students had direct instruction from Heather and Ernie and worked in pairs and were introduced to curricular missions. This group is planning a session for the new year! Well Done Questers. ~ Ernie
