A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words
From the growing list of proprietary game shows that we have designed, comes “Big Picture Blast”. It is always said that students learn better when they can visualize a concept, so why not make a game show based on this?
Big Picture Blast is the educational version of Lites, Sites, and Bites, a multimedia trivia recognition game used for corporate and college events in which the primary material is pop culture. In Big Picture Blast, our video screen has Powerpoint based questions with educational content. Questions include: picture recognition, math problems, word scrambles, multiple choice questions, sound bites, etc. Most of the material is targeted by grade level with basic academic concepts with a few pop culture questions thrown in for fun.
The set looks a little like “Multi Media Category Busters” with a video screen at an angle to four contestant podiums. The rhythm of the is similar to Interactive Trivia Blitz. Twelve contestants are picked either randomly or by list. Three participate at each podium. Questions and answers are shown on our video screen for all to see.
Generally each five minute game has about ten questions. If ten multi media questions do not fill the time period, we go to “Speed Rounds” with non media questions. As in Trivia Blitz, if two teams do not get the answer right, we go to the audience for a “life line”.
