Questr is the new innovative teaching intervention which enhances learning by introducing screen based physically active games into English and science lessons.
Substantial evidence exists which shows the benefits of being physically active during the school day. These include increased cognitive retention, better social skills and improved fitness levels, all leading to enhanced wellbeing and learning.
It is also well documented that children are spending more time in front of screens; playing games and interacting on social media.
But this needn’t be a bad thing!
By capitalising on this fascination we’ve designed dozens of games which can be slotted into any English or science lesson to encourage learners to get up, move around and explore their environment while solving problems on their tablets.
Feedback from teachers and pupils has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic with an ever increasing bank of anecdotal evidence that Questr games have a positive physical and mental impact young people.
