For Children: Data-Driven Learning

Ignite by Hatch is based on extensive research. Your children may call them "games," but the 203 learning experiences within Ignite are sophisticated tools covering 7 domains of learning (Physical, Social Emotional Development, Language & Communication, Phonological Awareness & Phonics, Math, Social Studies, and Science & Technology).

The Ignite platform is adaptable, responding to and building on the skills of each child, to ensure mastery of skills before progressing.

For Teachers: Built-in Assessment

We know that assessing Pre-K children is a time-intensive challenge. Ignite can help!

When children in your classroom play Ignite, the data is collected, analyzed, and reported in the Teacher Dashboard on Insights. Insights provides real-time assessment of each child’s skill progression and identifies children who may need a little extra help in certain areas. It even suggests one-on-one and group curricular experiences to individualize learning for each child.

Best of all, Ignite is integrated with GOLD® by Teaching Strategies®, providing objective and ongoing documentation that is automatically sent to GOLD® and added to a child’s portfolio.

Ignite saves you hours of observational time and reporting, so you can get back to what you love—teaching.
