Combining artificial intelligence with educational research modeled after effective teachers, we make better educational games.
Educational elements are integrated within the storyline. Problems don’t just fall from the sky, but are in context within the game – giving real-life examples of when knowledge/skills would be used. Getting answers wrong doesn’t just lead to more problems, but we teach the information and skills kids need to solve problems within the app.
7 Generation Games are developed by a team including a former math teacher, a statistician with a Ph.D. whose dissertation was on standardized testing, a rocket scientist (he’ll say, “I’m not a rocket scientist, just a physicist that did the radar for rockets!”) and a N.Y. Times best- selling writer. They’re build with classroom teachers and tested in school across the country.
Optimized for iPhones
Ratings and Reviews
Great educational adventure game in English AND Spanish!
AzTech: The Story Begins is great. Having the game be bilingual is amazing! As someone who has experience in the classroom, I know first hand that English Language Learners often struggle because of the language barrier and not because they don’t grasp the concepts being taught. Having both English and Spanish text, audio and videos while playing this fun adventure game of math and history is really beneficial for all students.
Helped my granddaughter with her math and Spanish
My granddaughter is ahead of her class in math and this was a great app for her to learn fractions and statistics. She also improved her Spanish.
I am writing this for my newness review who won’t stop talking about how awesome this game is. Best game ever! Can’t wait for him to play Making Camp and Fish Lake on the iPad.
