Arcademics Arcademic Skill Builders are online educational video games that offer a powerful approach to learning basic math, language arts, vocabulary, and thinking skills. Our philosophy is inspired by the intense engagement arcade and video games foster between the player and the game. The Arcademic goal is to make aspects of classroom instruction as effective in creating persistence and involvement as observed in video game players. Our games are a result of blending video game features into instructional research in order to achieve a high rate of student learning through increased time-on-task and engagement. Students must employ strategy under exciting circumstances to make rapid responses while being given immediate feedback on their decisions. These educational games provide fun and focused repetition practice that enables automaticity and fluency to be achieved more quickly. Student Safety Your students are completely safe while playing the games. Proceeds to Boys & Girls Clubs of America
