Focus Mode is a fantastic way for teachers to increase students' time on task!
How to Enable Focus Mode:
1. Navigate to the classroom you'd like to enable Focus Mode for.
2. Select Reports from the left-hand toolbar.
3. Select the View report under Student Usage.
4. Select the checkbox next to Focus mode, or Turn On to enable Focus Mode for one hour.
What is Focus Mode?
When you turn on Focus Mode, students visit the Tower Town location in-game and use their math skills to build unique towers that represent skill and knowledge growth.
Turning on Focus Mode generally encourages students to answer more questions, as gameplay is limited and socialization is disabled, which helps students concentrate on math uninterrupted! Turning this on has no impact on the teacher experience, and can be turned off at any time from the Teacher Dashboard.
How often do teachers need to turn on Focus Mode?
Focus Mode will automatically turn off after one hour. Teachers can turn on Focus Mode from their teacher dashboard every session.
Can students still access the rest of the game at home?
Students can access the rest of the Prodigy world when they select “Home” after logging in.
