GOGOs are the mini activities that make ImaginGO™ Creative Classroom fun and engaging.

ImaginGO™ Creative Classroom is made of six GOGOs. The GOGO’s content is randomly generated and unusual so that students do not know what to expect. Students must stay agile and flexible in their thinking to satisfy the goal of the various challenges.

Different GOGOs use different primary sensory input and output. The idea is to target a variety of sensory inputs and outputs in order to help discover multiple intelligences and talents in students. For instance, Hachoogie uses sound as a sensory input and then is followed up by writing and then drawing exercises.

There are also opportunities with GOGOs where a student can rap, mime, dance or act while also challenging students with writing a blog entry or composing a song. ImaginGO™ wants to ensure that there are equal opportunities for different types of learners and accounting for various ways that students express themselves in the classroom.
