This popular team brain game (which comes in Jeopardy-like, but original interactive style) offers a wonderful way to actively learn doable facts that add brainpower.
The whole brain game comes classroom-tested after 25 years with students who want more meaning from their learning and assessments.
The Mita Whole Brain Game includes 7 jeopardy-like categories to choose from. Teams take turns choosing their category and get 2 minutes to confer on answers.
Directions are straightforward:
A simple click takes you from money or points selected by the team to their related questions. The Mita Whole Brain Game points range from 100-600 point values – depending on difficulty of questions.
To highlight each selections as it is made by a team member, click on the big T in the toolbar and highlight that used selection.
Click on answer link after team responds – and you will see each correct answer displayed. If you wish to discuss any answer further – simply click on the castle and further research and points on this answer will appear.
Have a winning team member record their score on the board so all can see the growing scores.
Then return to main game page by clicking again on the blue icon (on bottom left of each page).
Click on the blue brain-synapse icon in lower left corner anytime you wish to zap back to your main game page for the next team selection.
One cool feature in this game is the teaching opportunity tool.
After category is chosen and answer is given, you may wish to teach more meaningful uses of the brain fact represented. Further facts appear for each answer – with a simple click of your mouse on the castle icon that delivers further facts for leading and learning with this new brain discovery. After considering any further facts to clarify – re-click on the blue icon in lower left corner to return to the main game page.
The game challenges learners and leaders to think and to ratchet up their own brainpower - as the questions increase in difficulty and as they increases their team’s points.
