Power for Remote Learning

Hi everyone! :)

I noticed that many Classcraft powers work best when we are together in a physical space.
This thread is for us to share ideas for Classcraft Powers that will work well in a remote learning context!
Please share below.
Include the following information, when it applies:
  1. Intended age range (i.e. elementary, middle, or high school)
  2. AP cost
  3. Is it Collaborative (Y/N)?

Does anyone have any good ideas for powers for remote learning?

I've been wracking my brain. I've written sentences that involve upkeeping physical health and extending learning.

Powers are usually effective in a classroom environment; however, I'm unsure how to implement powers that will both engage my students, as well as further my lessons. 


I notice the above question was downvoted and am uncertain why.

My best idea right now is to have my students send me pics of themselves holding a novel / textbook and then stitching the pics together digitally by group and featuring a different group every day on our LMS. That is not really a power, but it IS related to community building.

I was sure expecting everyone to have posted a whole lot of suggestions by now! I, too, am at a loss (not that I have spent a huge amount of time on this so far). 



I teach fourth grade. I’m not great at estimating costs. It seems that I either overestimate or underestimate. We are starting online learning tomorrow. Here’s what I was thinking for powers:

1. Ability to use a custom background during video chatting.

2. Ability to use a custom filter during video chatting.

3. Other Zoom capabilities.

4. Skip an online assignment (individual or team).

5. Take a break from working to play.

I posted this in another thread but as they are pretty similar -

For my Junior High School (13-15y) remote learning classes I've been using:
