Educators will open a new QUEST Box at the start of each month to engage with their class in an immersive storyline, developing students’ critical thinking, creativity, communication, & collaboration skills.
Each QUEST box includes five phases of gameplay:
1. Map Exploration (Creativity)
QUEST is a live experience where students will have to piece together clues to be the first to find rewards hidden throughout the map.
2. Encounter Decisions (Communication)
While exploring the map, students face challenges leading to tough decisions that shape the future of their QUEST for the year.
3. Puzzles (Critical Thinking)
As students discover hidden treasure, they will have to decrypt riddles and codes as a team in order to utilize the rewards they find.
4. Trading & Bartering (Collaboration)
Students cannot solve each QUEST Box without collaborating with other teams in their class to obtain the resources needed to succeed.
5. Debrief (Reflection)
Each QUEST box comes to an epic conclusion leading into the next episode, and educators are equipped with discussion guidelines from each box to facilitate debriefs with their students. Students can reflect individually, in groups, and as a class on that month’s QUEST and how it related to the educational principal connected to that box.
Season 1 is built around the ISTE Standards for students. Each month’s QUEST box will directly reflect one of the standards and give students a hands-on experience of that standard.
