S'Cool Tools of the Week: PrepFactory, Cignition

This week in S’Cool Tools, we've got two free tools for you, chosen by the EdSurge team. If you’d like to be featured in our S’Cool Tools column, click here to leave your very own Teacher Case Study.


Cignition’s Fog Stone Isle

Free! This math game for middle schoolers was recently profiled on KQED for bringing neuroscience into its design. With a virtual world slightly reminiscent of Minecraft, Cignition’s initial activities focus on fractions (currently free to use, though future sections of the program will require payment to use).

PrepFactory

Free! The SAT: Every high school students knows it (and most likely, some dread it). If your students are prepping for the test giant over the holiday break, or comparable exams like the ACT, PrepFactory is worth a gander. Games, practice sets, and step-by-step breakdowns help students work through confusing concepts or questions they might’ve gotten wrong.
