About the innovation

What is DragonBox School?

After 7 years of creating some of the most innovative math-learning videogames, DragonBox created a full learning solution for schools.

DragonBox School engages students through play and storytelling. It was developed together with teachers and over 1300 students during a 2 year pilot in Norway and Finland.

It offers educators a vast set of tools to chose from –both physical, printed and digital.

Each topic is introduced in digital laboratories, where students can experiment on their own and discover each mathematical concept in the curriculum. Classes do not begin with a lecture but the teacher rather asks students to get together and "figure out how this laboratory works".

After concepts are discovered by students it's time to practice them. This is both done on playable quizzes, printouts and on textbooks. Each one has its own advantage: digital quizzes offer engaging characters and immediate feedback while printed challenges require more student autonomy.

The set of tools in DragonBox School is vast. It includes dozens of digital laboratories and quizzes, several textbooks and storybooks, a set of physical number rods, a database of printouts for personalized work and a Teacher Handbook illustrated with videos that both show how each component work and how they can be used in class.

DragonBox School is currently only available for Finnish and Norwegian schools but we are working to take them to more countries in the near future. Its digital components are not available for download. However, two of its key components –DragonBox Numbers and DragonBox Big Numbers– can be purchased through the App Stores. Free versions for teachers are also available at DragonBox.com

Impact & scalability

Steps

Available only in Finland and Norway –more countries soon!

DragonBox School is currently only available in Finland and Norway at the school level.

We are currently working on adapting it to more countries' curriculum as well as including more grades (right now, only Grade 1 and Grade 2 are available).

We will inform of its availability on DragonBox.com and through our social media.
