The people who created it can explain it best. I borrowed some blurbs from the Age of Learning blog to share with you (I hope they don’t mind!):
“Adventure Academy is the world’s first educational…massively multiplayer online game (or MMO)! Launching May 1st on computers, tablets, and smartphones, Adventure Academy will provide elementary and middle school age children with an immersive, interactive learning adventure where they can explore an ever-expanding virtual world while building critical academic knowledge and skills.”
“We developed Adventure Academy to address the alarmingly low levels of academic proficiency among elementary and middle school students, prioritizing the areas the National Assessment of Educational Progress has consistently shown a majority of American students are not proficient in, including reading, math, and science. Adventure Academy offers learners opportunities to explore hundreds of topics within these subjects and learn in ways that are highly engaging and effective.”
And in a mom’s simple terms, this is like an imaginary school – I mean, a virtual school– it doesn’t replace a real school, don’t get me wrong- this is a supplement to your child’s education. It’s a platform where your child can ‘walk’ around the campus, explore classrooms, see other students (real and virtual), receive tasks from ‘instructors,’ learn through kiosks, displays, and more. There are mini educational games, books, puzzles, and videos. The creators seem to have combined a little bit of everything- learning/education, along with motivating (fun) tasks, entertaining characters, and awesome graphics. I kept joking to my kiddo that I wanted to live here. Or at least go to school here.
Here’s what you need to know about Adventure Academy:
It’s an online app for kids ages 8-13, that includes thousands of activities for math, reading, language arts, science, and social studies.
There are SO many learning activities, videos, games, and puzzles discovered on quests through an interactive virtual world! (My 9-year-old is SO excited to play this app! It’s not like any other game or program he has.)
The program is animated and perfectly designed for older children. We love the graphics and visual effects!
Up to 3 kids in one family can use one subscription.
There’s motivation to complete activities and challenges to allow children to level up, unlock new zones, and earn rewards in the virtual world.
This is a safe app that I feel comfortable letting my children play. There is an option to chat with other players, which is pretty cool! Parents control the level of interaction their children have through filtered chat and can block all in-game communication if desired.
The game can be played on a computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Over 40 experts in the field of education created this app.
Who is Adventure Academy For?
Adventure Academy is great for homeschoolers, students in a classroom, and parents wanting to supplement with educational activities at home (it’s great for preventing the summer slide!).
