Lightning Hunt

What if the School day was a game. What would be the highest level and how do you get there?

“Lightning Hunt motivates my students to focus on what's important during class and the learning that occurs“ - Robbie Graham, Teacher at Vittra Telefonplan

Do your students need to focus better?

What are their monsters and lightnings?

In the Lightning Hunt, the students learn to identify and take action on what makes their work in School successful. What distracts them from performing their very best? This is visualized in a gamified process by lightnings and monsters. To move forward, the Lightning hunt also focuses on developing skills your students need to succeed, both in school and life.

Moving on to the next planet

After a Lightning Lesson the teacher evaluates the game together with the students and decide together how many lightnings they should receive. This is done by counting the monsters that occur and compare to how many extra lightnings they have earned. To gain a new lightning, the students have to point out arguments connected to the skills, why they should recieve a lightning. This part is really important since it ensures the teacher that the students understand the purpose and mechanics behind the game. This process prevents behaviouristic acting where the students do things just to move forward.
