Mobile Games are now available in PLATO World Languages and PLATO CTE Electives courses. They provide a game based form of practice that is supplemental to the main curriculum, and is available on a variety of mobile communication devices. The games are meant to reinforce basic content from the course in a fun and engaging way. Additionally, the World Language games are focused on improving listening skills.
To gain access to the PLATO Courses games, a teacher or learner will need to use one of the following types of devices:
- Apple iPads, iPhones, or iPod Touch devices using iOS 4 or later
- Tablets or phones running the Android OS v2.3 or later
The process of getting to the games includes the following steps and requirements:
For IOS devices:
Visit the Apple Mobile App store in iTunes or on your device. Find the PLATO Courses Games app that matches your language and semester. Download the app, launch it, and use your PLE credentials to log in.
For Android devices:
Visit Google PLAY on your PC or device. Find the PLATO Courses Games app that matches your language and semester. Download the app, launch it, and use your PLE credentials to log in.
How to login:
One step for each student to in stall and play the games is to establish that the student is a PLATO customer and to show that you are part of a district or school with
licenses for the semester of languages at hand. To do this, a student will launch the app on a device, then enter their normal PLE login credentials, including Account
Login, PLATO Name, and Password.
Once the student authenticates a single time, the student will be able to open and play games directly on a designated device for one semester’s worth of games. This access will last for one year from the date of authentication. If the student continues to be a PLE user and your school continues to license our language courses, the student can re-authenticate to unlock the games for an additional year.
Refer to the Teacher Guide of the course for more details on the mobile games. This is accessible by going to the PLE Instructor Materials and clicking on the course.
