More current events content is produced than ever before, yet students are increasingly disengaged with it. Both newspaper circulation and network newscast ratings have long been in decline. And online news fares just as poorly. Our students (most of whom have never held a newspaper before) won’t go to the news or our content: We need to bring it to them in their sweet spot for learning!
FANschool.org turns students into fans of learning with fantasy sports-like games for school content and current events. Picture students drafting countries or states, rather than football players, and March Madness prediction-like contests for big events like Elections and Olympics.
