Story Mode Announcement!!




Hello, Classcraft community!

We have some VERY exciting news to share with you today — coming hot off the presses at ISTE 2019 in Philadelphia. 

One of our biggest requests around Quests, our tool for personalized learning, has been prewritten stories that teachers can use with their lessons. We’ve seen a lot of epic stories from our community (check out our Quests of the Month!), but not everyone has the time or energy to craft their own narratives, and that’s OK.

It’s our pleasure to introduce Story Mode, an episodic adventure that helps you engage and motivate students by harnessing the power and cultural relevance of storytelling.

Classcraft: Season 1 is a series of stories set within the Classcraft world. They’re essentially ready-made narratives that you can plug-and-play with Quests. What’s more, they align with CASEL’s core competencies, which means they provide experiential SEL that’s easy to implement in the classroom.

Season 1 explores themes of self-discovery and the value of human relationships through a year-long story. Episodes 1 and 2 are available now, and during Back to School 2019, new episodes will be released monthly to continue the adventure.

We hope you enjoy Story Mode as much as we do! Let us know what you think in the comments!

The excitement is rising! I can’t wait to dive in this summer!

Looks interesting guys. Will have to roll it out into a demo class and see how it can be integrated into my classrooms.

Although I am excited about the new stories. But I believe we are all waiting for automated boss battles😔

So, is there going to be away for the kids to view the trailer BEFORE they start the story.  Ep. 1 mentions the towers BUT if there is no way to show the kids the movie trailer, or in actuality it is the story prologue, some of the story will be lost to them. Is there anyway to add it?

 

Hi Jeffrey, 

Great feedback! We're looking into possibly adding it to the Quest itself, in the meantime, you can access it with this link: https://vimeo.com/331344357

I am super excited about this feature. I am very comfortable with using ClassCraft in my classes. However, the story side of things is what was always lacking. I look forward to including more of these stories into my own quests. Thank you ClassCraft.

 

These stories are amazing! I'm wondering if there is a plan to roll them out in different languages (I teach a French Immersion class), before I undertake the translation battle myself ;-)
