Social test prep

Grockit is the must-have social network for learning

Is this the answer to student collaborative learning?  Grockit uses the concepts of gaming, social networking and practice to help students prepare for standardized testing.
SAT, ACT, GRE and GMAT all have their own links for groups and learning.  Points are earned, friends are made - and hopefully learning occurs.

The latest announcement is their "Summer Enrichment Academy" - don't lose what you know over the summer months. 

As much as I disagree with standardized testing - it is part of the lives of our students.  Until we move away from it and more into true achievement monitoring - here is another method to make the preparation more "21st century".

You be the judge -
