No schools. No day care. No office, and lots of social isolation. We’re all facing enormous personal and societal challenges at the moment. Fortunately, the internet helps us stay in touch. It even helps us learn at a distance! Actionbound is trying to support instruction at home with free access for teachers until the end of April.
With Actionbound, creating digital, game-like scavenger hunts or quiz games is child’s play. These “Bounds” can then be played by students using the Actionbound app. You can create Bounds to your own specifications and to meet the demands of your instruction. You can include many different elements, including quizzes, tasks, media such as videos and audio files, and much more. You don’t need to know anything about programming– in fact, the Bound Creator on our website has been recognized for its ease of use more than once.
Gamification can make learning fun. It can also help take our minds off our troubles and cares. Let your students play together, even when they’re far apart! For your Bounds, you’ll always receive an overview of the results, which you can process as you see fit. Start a Bound Challenge. You can find out how here.
Right now, solidarity is the name of the game. Thanks to the Bound sharing function, you can share your Bounds with other licensed users. They can then customize the content to their needs. So if you’ve created a great Bound on a particular subject, why not share it with your colleagues! You can post your Bounds to our forum, where your colleagues can play them and maybe even make a copy.
Your students can also create their own Bounds. Our school and teacher’s licenses include Instant Accounts, which can be used to protect your students’ privacy (in accordance with GDPR), without forcing your students to register for an account. Moreover, you’ll have complete control over their Bounds.
