New Version of JogNog Learning Game Saves Teachers Time

LYNNFIELD, MA —June 11, 2012 — Teachers are always pressed for time, and as schools adopt common core standards, they are further stretched to ensure their students are learning the right content. To address this need, JogNog has opened up its library of elementary and middle school content to teachers who want to create games that match their specific lesson plans. A teacher can now create a video game that completely supports their lesson plan and do so much faster and more conveniently than writing their own test and review materials.

Other exciting features in this new version include:

·         Praise Me! button enables students to send a message to a friend, family member, or teacher reporting on their accomplishments.

·         Tower Perfection shows students which topics cause them problems so they can replay the games that will make a difference in their grade.

·         The Leaderboard now displays all-time leaders in addition to 24-hour leaders.

“My students love JogNog,” said Cara Whitehead, school teacher at Carlisle Elementary School in Boaz, Alabama. “Quick Quiz lets me create content specific to my curriculum. It also allows me to differentiate quiz questions based on my students' instructional levels.”

“Many teachers are challenged to find good multiple choice questions for tests and student review,” noted Stephen Smith, CEO and co-founder of JogNog.com. “With JogNog Quick Quiz, teachers can now create a video game using educator-approved questions in under 5 minutes. We have made Quick Quiz 100% free for teachers, and they love the way it also motivates their students to study.”

The JogNog game is available online, as well as in the iTunes store ( http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jognog/id459602071) and in the Android market ( https://market.android.com/details?id=com.g7research.jognog). Both the apps and the website include free content for a wide variety of grade levels and subject areas, along with in-depth quizzes based on state standards starting at 99 cents.

JogNog is always free for teachers to create their own quizzes for their students using the JogNog library of over 20,000 standards-based multiple choice questions. A one-minute tutorial on creating a Quick Quiz is available on JogNog’s YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/user/JogNogGame.
