How to use Learning Profiles.
Learning Profiles contain customized recommendations for games and apps that can help with each student's specific learning needs.
First you will need to tell us which platforms your students have access to, so we know what games and apps to recommend.
Then we'll ask you for some basic information, and to tell us about which skills and challenges the student is struggling with.
Once finished, you'll be taken to the Learning Profile, where each of the skills and challenges you chose will be displayed at the top of the page.
You can find the student's top recommendations in the Games and Apps box below.
You can filter these recommendations by Learning Challenge or Skill by clicking on buttons over the games and apps.
To see all of the student's recommendations, click on the See All button at the top of the box.
Further down on the page, you'll find recommendations for Play Now games and Prescriptions.
Play Now games are fun, popular online games that kids can play and learn from right here on LW4K.
Prescriptions are step-by-step guides for using specific series of games and apps to improve thinking skills and academics.
That's it. Start creating your first Learning Profile now!
