Frequently Asked Questions

What activities can my student do in the K12 Zone?

How is the K12 Zone monitored?

The K12 Zone is monitored by K12 moderators trained on the layout of the Zone, interacting with students within the Zone, the code of conduct students must follow within the Zone, and how to take action if a student breaks that code of conduct.

What can moderators see in the K12 Zone?

How private is my student’s activity?

Only K12 students, K12 teachers, and moderators can join the K12 Zone.

How is the K12 Zone different than playing video games?

The K12 Zone was designed to foster creativity, socialization, and community. While there are some games within the K12 Zone (tic-tac-toe, chess, etc.), the students will be spending most of their time getting to know others within their school.

Additionally, if students spend excessive time playing games, moderators can encourage other ways for the student to utilize the K12 Zone.
