Act Play & Learn. Bridging learning gaps through play!

The AP&L Internship Offer



Good news for all pre-service teachers. The AP&L Academy is offering an internship opportunity for all pre-service undergradiate and graduate level teachers. Our unique game-based learning program creates games for the learning environment. We harness the human behavior patterns from the 40 year old video gaming industry. Human beings are motivated by a sense of power and control over their learning, mastering new concepts and skills, sharing accomplishments with peers and family, setting higher goals and ultimately acheiving them. The life of an individual is a repeated cycle of such motivation stimulated behaviors. With powerful human motivation features in our games, we want YOU, the pre-service teachers to faciliate these games in a learning environment. 

We will train you to become a facilitator (5 hours). You will then be eligible to play these games with learners and evidence their learning in the form of Active Asessments TM (200 hours).
