ZONDLE: Zondle is a games-based learning platform that allows teachers and students to create, play and share educationally-adaptive games. Based in the U.K., Zondle launched in January 2011 and pledges to be “free and always free.” Content is separate from games so questions may be presented through the context of any of the 40 games. EdSurge’s Tony would call these “casual” games, very much aimed at giving students a fun environment to practice vocabulary, math facts and such. Founder Ben Barton tells EdSurge: “We’re trying to facilitate teachers to use games to support the learning that they want their students to learn! They can enter their own topics, exactly as their students’ need. They also get to use far more than multiple-choice, we have about 15 different types of questions that they can use, they can monitor progress, and the students can even create their own animations.” There are currently 10,000 sets of questions available. Get it for free via web browser, Android, or iOS.
