We know many students have been asking for this for a long time now and we’re excited to reveal a new world selection feature that will allow for you to arrange to meet with your friends in one of our 90 available worlds.
When you first login to the game, you’ll be asked to “Choose Your World”. You can choose the same world as your friends so that you can play Prodigy together.
We have made some very exciting changes to the teacher dashboard for the upcoming school year. This new enhanced interface for teachers and parents will provide you with insight in terms of your students/children’s recent usage, performance, trouble spots as well as quick overviews for assignments and placement test progress.
