Please teacher, more games!

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 8:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.

Using technology to improve writing activities

Using technology to improve writing activities | ESL thoughts | Scoop.it

"Anna Silva has been a language teacher for over 20 years in Brazil, teaching in state and language schools. Here she talks about how she uses technology with teenagers to improve their writing."

 

Two ideas that are worth sharing:

 

- Have students take photos with their camera phones and write a fifty word story based on that picture.

 

 - Tweet summaries of texts to her.  That was hard for students to do because they were not allowed to use the usual texting shorthand in their tweets. 

 

These are two great examples of "starting from where the students are"!
