Braingo is here!
Braingo is an exciting online platform that is as educational as it is fun. Ensuring that all children achieve in numeracy is vital in ks1 and ks2. Braingo can provide valuable lesson resources to help teachers explain specific mathematical concepts as well as engage learners in the classroom.
How does Braingo work?
The game is a take on traditional bingo: instead of simply matching numbers, students first need to solve a maths riddle. It's quick and easy to create online maths games with Braingo that are targeted at the appropriate level for learners, whether they are at ks1, ks2 or ks3. There are thousands of questions available to chose from. Maths games can be set covering everything from number bonds to decimals or fractions.
Ways to use Braingo in the classroom
Playing online maths games such as Braingo is a great way to engage the whole class. Reluctant learners can be easier to reach with interactive activities, whilst the whole class can benefit from the opportunity to consolidate and test their understanding of key concepts. They don't even realise they're learning as they are too busy having fun.
Braingo can be used at the start of a lesson as a settling down activity, to break up a lesson and reinforce the learning or as a means of ensuring that learners have understood the concepts being taught and are following the National Curriculum. It's easy to get going: all that's need is a computer with speakers and internet access.
And Braingo is not just about maths games. Teachers will soon be able to subscribe to English, History, Geography, Science and Modern Foreign Languages packs. Schools can purchase a single licence, have unlimited users and manage and monitor their own subscriptions online. There's even a free trial of the platform available.
