Legends of Learning's Awakening Town is our open-ended, student-directed experience in which they can play at home without having an assignment launched by a teacher.
Students who are not accessing the Town from a teacher assignment can sign up for an Awakening account by going to app.legendsoflearning.com/login/students/choose. After students have signed up for an account or logged in with their standard login credentials, they can select the Awakening 'PLAY' button for independent student play.
Once students are in Awakening, first-time student students will start off in the Awakening School. In the School, students will create their Avatars and go through the tutorial to then access the Town via the schoolyard.
From the schoolyard, students will then need to navigate to the gondola to select the option to be transported over to the Awakening Town.
This student-directed experience gives students the cool features they have been requesting like avatar creation, battling, and quests. Students can engage in educational "combat" against enemy beasties and are rewarded for winning battles by answering content-related questions correctly.
In the Awakening Town, students can access an Arcade Room to play mini-games to help them brush up on their knowledge before entering into battles. As students move through the Town and interact with characters, they will encounter various battles.
Rewards for winning battles include coins that are used to purchase items such as avatar gear and furniture for their house in the Town. Additionally, some beasties may want to join a student's Squad if defeated in battle.
In the Town Square, students can also test their knowledge by participating in the fun and exciting Quizzler Game Show.
In the Quizzler Game Show, students can play alone or with other student players. The students must answer Questions and Luck Rounds correctly in the game show to win coins! The questions students will have to answer in the game show correlate with the grade level and the subject they have selected within their Awakening accounts.
The Awakening experience is a great way to re-engage students in Math and Science content. In addition, Awakening offers additional benefits to students, including:
Allowing students to engage in productive struggle
Allowing students to progress at their own pace until they have mastered the content
Providing students with experiences that they would not otherwise have access to in their everyday life
