Here’s what we’re working on at Prodigy…

Up to 5 of these items will appear each day! Reach the following milestones in each zone to earn rewards:
- 5, 10, 25, 50, 75 and 99
What lies in store for you intrepid collectors out there? You’ll have to speak to a familiar friend in each zone starting on Tuesday, April 19th, 2016 to find out…

Curriculum Override Changed to “Grade Override”:
As part of a continual effort to improve the adaptability of the game for your children and students, we’re isolating each curriculum for parents and teachers.
- Parents as well as teachers will be expected to select a location for their account.
- Parents/Teachers will be restricted to changing grade level from only their selected curriculum for their children/students rather than curriculum and grade.
- “Curriculum override” will be known as “Grade Override” indicating that only a change of grade can now be selected.
This will enable us to isolate each individual curriculum, prevent overlap and gaps in skill trees and ensure that the content your children/students receive is consistent with their selected grade and curriculum even when controlled by multiple parents/teachers.
Please Note: Assignments from all curricula will remain available.
70 New Skills for Ontario:
More content for the Ontario Curriculum! Check out our interactive skills page here and keep an eye out for the “New” indicator to identify the new content.
Here are some highlights:
Single-digit addition using tens frames - Ontario Grade 1
Comparing 3 numbers from 0-100 using number line - Ontario Grade 2
We’re always looking for better ways to provide information to children/students. As a part of this effort, we’re bringing out new and more convenient methods for delivering in question hints for 100 skills starting Tuesday, April 19, 2016.
Rather than moving to a separate page which obscures the question, these new hints appear right in window in a pop-up bubble. Just click on the lightbulb icon to check it out.
Along with the hint bubbles change, the hint icon will now be represented by a lightbulb, replacing the previous “?” icon.
We sure hope you like these changes and stay tuned for future updates and news!
