JeopardyLabs and Quia Shared Activities

I just had to share these great sites.  One of the trainings that always seems to be a big draw and gets participants really excited is Games In Education.  This year I was lucky enough to read about JeopardyLabs just in time for the training.  JeopardyLabs allows you to quickly create a Jeopardy game.  All a teacher needs to do is go to the site, create a password, fill in the template, save, and write down (or delicious) the page that comes up.  The most important step of the process is being sure to get down the last page with the link to play the game and the link to edit the game.  I used this site the last two weeks with my teachers and they are creating great games.  

Also, if you haven’t checked out Quia Shared Activities it is another great site. You can find a plethora of games that have already been created (Challenge Board is Jeopardy and Rags to Riches is Who Wants to be a Millionaire).  Quia is a great place to also find questions even if you are creating your own JeopardyLabs game.
