LT- Media Carts (Well, All equipment really)
PLEASE return your equipment as soon as your reservation is over. IF there is a situation where you attempt to return equipment and you are not able to enter the library to do so, please email me so I know where it is, lock it in your classroom and return it first thing in the morning.
What is Gimkit? It is a quiz game that rewards students for getting items right by giving them pretend currency. When they begin, students earn $1 for a right answer and lose $1 for a wrong answer. Once they accumulate $10, they can start to purchase upgrades from the shop. For example, they can choose to make questions be worth $10 per question. But that means they also lose $10 per question they get wrong. Or they might choose to spend their money on upgrading streak points. So maybe they want to be rewarded when they get 2 in a row correct. You can also purchase a multiplier, and multiply every dollar in or out. They could even choose to buy insurance! for $10 you could insure 10% of the amount that you might lose each turn. Students can play as individuals OR on teams!
As students collect more money, they can purchase bigger upgrades.
Get this: You can IMPORT games from Quizlet! It walks you through a pretty simple copy/paste process to bring your old games over.
This is a really fun one. What a great find for the last few weeks of school. If you try it, let me know!
