MAKEorBREAK was founded by Kristin Savage in 2009 when he was teaching commerce and wanting to engage his students while teaching them key-terms and concepts.
My name is Jared Lynn and I have taught in secondary classrooms for 10 years. In 2015, I purchased MAKEorBREAK and took over from Kristin. I used MAKEorBREAK extensively in my own classroom and I plan to expand its use in Kiwi classrooms.
I have a passion for creating teaching resources that save teachers time and engage students through the use of technology and fun! I'm confident that MAKEorBREAK will inject some life, fun and learning into your classroom!
The students really enjoy the game and it’s a useful revision tool. The questions are very similar to NCEA exam questions so they are being well prepared.
The games have been a huge hit with our students. You’ve put together a great package with the flags, sounds etc. Thanks for the fun we’re having!
My classes love the game, and the exam based ones are great for reinforcing the requirements of the standards.
MAKEorBREAK is awesome. I used it as preparation for the school exams and will use it even more as we get ready for the externals. Even my most laid-back classes are so competitive during a game!
