Quest of the Alphabet

By Shivon Diana

The Greek alphabet gaming challenges and competitive nature of the quest have students really engaged and keen to master each stage in order to progress and be the first to reach the top of the mountain for a huge XP reward! Each stage uses a link to an external game where students learn various Greek alphabet letters (broken into a sequence that scaffolds their learning of the alphabet). The Quest is designed to address beginners and experts in Greek by splitting the journey into two visible learning pathways. The left hand side of the quest includes challenging extension games whilst the righthand side includes Quizlet games that deal with basic content. The quest encourages students to be self-managers in their learning as they have to use each resource in Quizlet to reflect on their progress at each stage and they can only move on once they have received 100% on their Quizlet test twice in a row. With explicit instructions in the classroom, students know how to use the Quizlet resources to track their progress and ensure they are adequately prepared to be successful in their online tests in order to get 100% twice and then progress to receive their XP and GP reward. They are also able to visibly see how well they know the full semester's content by seeing how far up the mountain they have gone.
