The attached files are games and activities developed by Adam Edwards and Vanessa Hill to support teaching information literacy skills at Middlesex University. Some of the games will need laminating and cutting up for use in multiple sets. You can use these for your own teaching. We just ask that you tell us if you make new versions as we like to build on new ideas.

A Primer On Using Games To Teach

 

by Rosa Fattahi, WizIQ

A key element to ensuring any successful pedagogy is student engagement.

However, keeping students motivated and actively involved can be difficult. Besides the basic challenges of maintaining students’ interest and participation in class, today’s teachers also have to deal with growing numbers of students and the increased distraction from smart phones and other personal devices.

One good way to keep students engaged in the learning process is by varying class exercises to include a combination of lectures, individual assignments, group work, computer activities, videos, and other pedagogical tools like games. Games are interactive, fun, and appealing to most students, and they also offer a number of specific benefits to the learning process.
