Games to Ignite Brains - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS

Games to Ignite Brains - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it
The other day, I noticed one of my daughters playing a puzzle type game on my iPad. It was obviously challenging and often frustrating but she kept at it regardless. The game was direct problem solving and my girl was deeply engaged. It was then I had an idea. If any learner who found themselves disengaged from a school task had permission to select from a list of problem-solving, “brain igniting” games, it might mean they return to the task more energised to tackle it or suggest other solutions.
