Advance U: Learning Strategies is an engaging way to introduce students to the concepts of goal setting and time management. The game, designed for 11th to 12th graders, blends digital game based learning with a contemporary setting to give students an authentic, real-world environment in which to apply these concepts as they work their way through a semester at McLarin Academy. Where students must first learn and then apply the concepts of goal setting and time management.
The president of McLarin Academy has proposed three semester-long competitions in an effort to get students thinking about their long-term goals. Acting as a student at the academy, players must choose at least one long-term goal from these three competitions, helping other characters along the way as they learn to set goals and manage their time to meet those goals.
