Do you want help introducing a tech tool to your students?
Aidan, Kris & myself are more than happy to help introduce tech (remote, or IRL) to your class. We can also spend time, or an entire Digital Essentials class period helping your students, or supplementing an existing project in your curriculum!
If it makes sense for one of us to come in more than other (ex: Do you want Kris' database, or Sora expertise? Aidan's website building skills?) We can come into your class even if we don't regularly teach Digital Essentials in that grade.
Just let us know as a team in advance, & we will work out the logistics.
We are also as excited as you are to help in a more significant way with interdisciplinary projects. Let's collaborate!

1 From your Gimkit dashboard, click Classes

I strongly recommend selecting Class without student accounts
Gimkit does not completely comply with children's privacy laws. With this second option students will not need to set up accounts with Gimkit in order to play your Kit.

6 Enter your Class Members' names
7 Scroll down and Click Create Class
The first steps of this tutorial are for assigning your Kit as self-paced Homework.
From your Gimkit Dashboard, Click Assignments.

4 Click Select a date to choose a due date, and due time (optional)
Click Select some classes to choose the class want to assign this Kit to.
You need to have already created your Classes in order to do this (watch the previous video)
6 If you'd like, change the "Target Cash" and "Max Time" options, then click Create Assignment
7 You can then click Copy Link to paste it onto any platform your students can access
8 Or, you can click Google Classroom to automatically assign your Kit to a class through Google Classroom
9 To start your Kit as a Live Game, click Kits to select the Kit you want to play
10 Click Play Live
Select which game option you want to play: Time, Race, or All In (there is an explanation for each one).
You can also customize the time limit.
12 Select which Class will be playing your Kit
13 Select Classic (for a 1-on-1 game, like a Kahoot), or Team Mode for a team challenge
14 Click Continue
Your game code will then appear. Students can enter this code by navigating to gimkit.com/play on their device.
Click Start Game when all of your players have entered the code
