Stranded is a browser game designed to improve student co-operation. You play the game with your class or with another group. The best results come from working together.
Do you find that your class needs work on their skills at co-operation or do you want to reward your class with a relaxing time that boosts the class spirit? Then you should have them play Stranded!
In Stranded, the whole class has a common goal. The game teaches the class to work constructively and together. As the adventure progresses, the need to discuss tactics amongst the group increases and decision-making becomes vital! Each player engages in the game’s world to make the island a better place to live by voting for the best alternative.
Players attempt to create optimal living conditions on the island, which is a goal that each and every student can work towards with their actions and choices. You can’t survive working on your own - instead, common resolutions and discussions are necessary to vote for the right options.
The game can be played at any grade level in elementary schools and junior high schools. The game is best played by students from grades 4 to 9. The teacher may use the game to get new classes to get to know one another or to simply improve the communication and cooperation of a class. The game is also well-suited for social studies, student counselling and arts class.
The game is played on a computer that has an Internet connection. To play the game, no installation or student registration is required. One game lasts roughly 25 minutes and afterwards the group receives feedback on how well they did together.
