What is the AP&L Curriculum and how is it used in the UAE National Games?
What if every student in your class felt like they were in a gaming environment? What if every lesson was a game and every assessment a level to be crossed?
What if your students never missed a lesson just to keep up with their game levels?
What if you played with them to learn in the classroom?
What are Active Assessments?
Facilitators observe game performance of each player and fill out Active Assessment Sheet that records the level of achievement of major learning objectives of the game.
The AP&L Curriculum prides itself for using National Qualifications Authority (NQA), Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC), and Common Core (USA) Standards for Curriculum Design.
