With quests, learners enter a world that requires them to work together with peers and mentors, think critically, and affect change.
Learners take charge of their own discovery process, selecting small activities from a variety of problem- or topic-based quests. Learners can work on up to six quests at a time and complete them at their own pace.
Throughout quests, mentors act as trusted advisors to their learners. Although mentors are most often teachers, they can also be more experienced peers or subject-matter experts. Mentors can also create and suggest quests using the QuestMaker™ app.
Peers and Peer Mentors
Research shows that learning is a social experience. As they work to complete quests, learners are encouraged to engage and interact with their peers. After a learner completes a quest, they may serve as mentors by offering support to others.
Subject Matter Experts
Using QuestMaker™, curriculum experts, teachers, mentors, or anyone knowledgeable about a topic can design and publish quests. Quest-based training resources are available for quest designers to learn how to create quests that engage learners and enable discovery-driven learning.
