For those in the education world, the new Common Core standards represent an important initiative in the pursuit of clarifying and improving the quality of education in the US. Read more about Common Core standards here.
Coming from an education background, I have always been committed to furthering ways in which ThinkFun games can integrate into and enrich classroom learning. Working with expert teachers and gifted specialists, I have begun the exciting work of mapping some of our great learning games to specific common core standards – both to help teachers select the most appropriate games for their learning goals, and also to help highlight the true academic value these thinking tools have!
This matrix represents exciting initial work, but we’ve got much more to do! Are you an educator who uses ThinkFun games with your students? I would love your help with this project – please feel free to leave a comment or send me an email if you are interested!
