How Classroom Game Shows Raise Students' Scores & Attitudes
A fun game show for learning can help your students pay attention, think more and improve scores. And now it's easy to put reviews, quizzes and practice tests into a fun game show format with Game Show Presenter software.
These classroom games present tv-style quiz shows that focus attention on your subject matter. How? The games use your quiz questions instead of general trivia. Students are motivated to participate because they see games as play, not work. In reality, classroom review games are work and play. This approach to reviews and practice drills is appealing to a wide age-range from adult learners down to early grades. Could your students benefit from challenging games about your topics?
"It is the single most engaging piece of software I've ever used in the classroom."
— Mario C. - Teacher
Game Show Presenter software is easy to use. It does all the multimedia and scorekeeping for you. All you do is write your quiz with the built-in Quiz Editor. Then name your game show and choose any options you want. You're ready to use the game as an engaging pre-test review, study drill, practice test or quiz!
Since each quiz game you create is saved as a separate file, it's very easy to build a collection of quiz games you can use year after year to improve your students' scores and attitudes.
"I use your software to prepare students for midterms and final exams and it is very effective.."
— Ted C. - College instructor
You may also want to use Game Show Presenter for in-service training, orientations, staff events and assemblies. It's great fun for colleagues and parents.
How are educators using Game Show Presenter?
Most teachers use this quiz software with a projector or smartboard so the entire class can see the show.
Game Show Presenter is a great tool for educators as proven by the enthusiastic and unsolicited comments on this page. These games motivate students to pay attention and participate. And they increase their retention through practice recall.
The icing on the cake is it's affordable and easy to use. The Bronze Level is just $49 and includes three game formats. The Gold Level is our most popular version with many extra features at $99. Unlike some programs that bill you annually, you just pay our fee once and you are set for years! Both programs are available for Windows or Mac computers.
