Change Learning


At Jetlag Learning, we think big to transform education, and we believe that effective Games-Based-Learning has huge potential. We envision
  • Students as creators with (your) content and evaluators of quality
  • Real world environments: open-ended and dynamic
  • Moving beyond recall: Develop business plans and other real products for a real audience
  • Empowering educators to customize and target learning

  • Post a message or information to your entire class via the Bulletin Board. Change this message as often as you like. See how students respond.
