Intern project: The impact of game-based learning on classroom teaching

Hi all,

One of our interns is currently working on his final project “The impact of game-based learning on classroom teaching”, he has designed a questionnaire on CEED Universe – our educational game. The aim of his study is to assess the way lessons are currently taught in the classroom, and see if games such as CEED Universe can benefit students. For more information on the subject he recommends checking out this e-Book called Reality is Broken by Jane McGonigal.


The optimization of learning is very important to us; and so is supporting our pi-top Family members! Therefore, if you have some spare time to support him and fill in the questionnaire by clicking here (should only take a few minutes) – we would all be ecstatic. 🙂

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

Hi All,

As mentioned in our latest Indiegogo update: we have a software update for you all!

In the pi-topCEED video you likely noticed our learning game CEEDUniverse and we hope you are excited about the concept of an engaging game that intertwines real learning in a fun adventure. We are now ready to give you a sneak peak of how far CEEDUniverse has come since we launched the campaign 🙂 We have also integrated sound into the game! Look out next week for our video update on the pi-topSPEAKER!

 

Apologies for the delay in shipping emails we will be sending them out today and we have made our big website update where amongst other things you will have a login portal where you can update and finalise your shipping as a pi-topCEED Indiegogo backer. The email you receive will have instructions on how to go through the process.

Our next updates will focus on the general pi-topOS improvements and our brand new Raspberry Pi lesson plan integrated code editor. We have kept it slightly under wraps so far but we are very excited to show you this new feature bundled in pi-topOS!

As a side note – we have improved our freight shipping boxes – don’t they look pretty!

Importantly the rigid corner design and honeycomb panels are recyclable and will reduce shipping damage to a minimum 🙂 whilst also reducing the amount of EPE Foam we have to use to protect the devices in transit by 90%. Part of why we design as much as possible that goes into all of pi-top is so we can reflect our company values on our supply chain.

Thanks all and keep an eye on your inbox’s!

Love,

pi-top Team
