Running an Edbox Classroom

· Check for our official coursewares or come up with your own streamlined course plan.

· Creating guidelines for your course together with students

Using Edbox in the classroom can be exciting but it’s important to set some ground rules to create a fun and cooperative learning environment. Whenever starting a new Edbox classroom, we recommend that you create classroom rules together with your students. By giving students ownership over the rules they create, they’ll be more likely to follow them, and build a positive digital citizenship later.

Some common rules that can be introduced such as:

1. Appreciate other students' efforts and contributions

2. Respect other students and equipments

3. Ask others for help and be willing to help others

4. Don't play or test games without teacher's permission

 

 

With our game template, you can also create your own education games for your class in just a few steps. We will come back to that topic later. Enjoy yourself with this next gen STEAM education tool and have fun creating!
