ActiveFloor is a big success in Emily King’s class at Toll Gate Elementary in Pickerington, Ohio. She uses ActiveFloor every week with her students. Read why it’s such a good working tool – no matter age, level or grade and why the kids love it!
“ActiveFloor’s gaming system satisfies students at all levels. I’m able to implement the interactive learning games with those having special needs also, (from non-verbal and severe autism to wheelchair users). Whether it’s one of the learning games, sensory games or an activity like soccer to encourage good behavior, all of my 750 students are able to participate in one way or another” – says Emily King
Emily King has kept us regularly updated on her game creation and class activities since she acquired the ActiveFloor Mobile Cart earlier this year. ”It’s a great product and my kids are loving it!” says Emily and adds, ”I love how excited my students are on a Monday morning.”
“Rather than repeating drills in a way that may otherwise cause kids to burn out and lose interest, ActiveFloor combines play and learning together, that keep the kids’ interest.”

“Imagine having fun and learning something important at the same time. I love how excited my students are on a Monday morning.”

INDIVIDUALITY VS. UNITY
Unlike a tablet which is designed for individual use, the ActiveFloor interactive learning system is meant for a classroom full of can’t-sit-still-and-want-to-play-now youngsters, who learn and play together. Those who eagerly wait for their turns will watch closely and intently to help answer questions and cheer on their classmates.
An unexpected outcome …
An unexpected outcome Emily King has noticed of having the ActiveFloor in her technology sessions has been watching the students interact in a way that reflects team building skills. ActiveFloor levels the playing field so to speak. “Kids who may be typically shy or withdrawn are now being picked first for teams because of their memorization and concentration skills”.
“I love to see how children and students all of a sudden find the subjects they usually have difficulties with, fun and educating because the focus is shifting from learning to play.”

The ActiveFloor Mobile system is incredibly user-friendly
Emily comments on how ”incredibly user-friendly” the ActiveFloor Mobile system is for classroom use and how easy it is to develop her own learning games. Emily has already made eight games for her students with more to come. She is even sharing her games with other teachers!
ActiveFloor offers several models depending on room conditions and also includes gaming software with access to an extensive online game library, where you in a very few minutes you can create your very own interactive learning games – and if you don’t want to make you own games you can easily use one of the many games found in the global library. You can even assign the children homework where they have to develop their own games.
