These activities can be helpful (and fun!) at the start of the year to help your team get to know each other. They can also be used throughout the year as warm-up activities, or when your team needs a break. If your team is struggling to work together effectively, or needs a morale or energy boost, try out some of these activities!

Abstract

 

Whilst some critics may argue that games have no place in the classroom, in this article I argue that student achievement can benefit from building on the technology skill of the young people, allowing them to address real-life challenges within the safety of the virtual worlds of games. The young people of today play video games for entertainment and relaxation, and they are skillful at manipulating the virtual worlds that they inhabit during the games. Examples from classroom research illustrate how the use of video games in teaching and learning has the potential to change the way that we teach and improve the learning outcomes for the students by enabling them to experience real life examples. Teachers can harness these experiences and interests to engage and motivate students by taking advantage of the dynamic and interactive features of these digital games, thus enabling engagement in learning activities. This article highlights some of the issues and challenges facing teachers considering the use of game based learning in their classroom.
