Teachers are always looking for ways to help students develop their writing, creativity and critical thinking skills. I was looking for a solution within these very areas of study when I discovered Night Zookeeper. It is an educational cross-platform game that incorporates creative writing, literacy, collaboration, and problem-solving all in one. Even the most reluctant writers will beg to log onto nightzookeeper.com and start writing, both at school and from home.

In this session, you will learn how to inspire a love of writing in your classroom by using nightzookeeper.com. I will show you around the core features of the program and introduce you to the amazing story and characters that get students so very excited about writing!
