Online Educational Video Games Promote Student Engagement and Make Learning Fun

KANSAS CITY, KS--(Marketwired - January 19, 2016) - Arcademics, the online multiplayer edu-gaming platform, today announced its annual national multiplication competition, the Arcademics Cup, is scheduled for Feb. 4-5, 2016. Last year, over 10,000 classrooms around the U.S. participated in the online contest.

Students in kindergarten through sixth grade who are already enrolled in Arcademics Plus are eligible to register for the competition. Classrooms that are not currently using Arcademics Plus can sign up for a free trial teacher account to register students, who can participate in the competition at no cost to them or the teacher.

Prizes will be awarded to first place earners in a variety of categories such as Top Scores, Most Points, Class Points, and Percentage Correct, to name a few. First place in each classroom leaderboard will win an iPad® rack with 10 iPad minis™. First place winners will also receive a one-year subscription to Arcademics Plus (up to 30 students). First place in each individual leaderboard will win a $50 Amazon.com gift card as well as a one-year subscription to Arcademic Plus for their classroom (up to 30 students). Second, third, fourth, and fifth place in each leaderboard will each receive a one-year subscription to Arcademics Plus for their classroom (up to 30 students). 

In addition to challenging students, the Arcademics Cup also provides teachers with critical insights into student performance.

"Our students really enjoyed last year's Arcademics Cup, and their performance data was interesting to look through," said David Woodward, Math Intervention Specialist at Boulder Valley Schools.

Mobile apps from Arcademics are available for download on both the App Store and Google Play.
