Sophie Smith's curator insight, March 6, 2013 6:35 PM

This is a great English and technology resource that I believe would be very popular with the boys ;).  As a beginning teacher I am always looking for new ways to inspire students to take an interest in reading and literacy.  Tools like this, which are outside the traditonal literacy square, help kids that may not be interested in reading or writing get involved in their literacy learning.  A resource for upper primary.

Word Raider

Word Raider | K-12 Web Resources - English and Language Art | Scoop.it

English language learners. While the mechanics aren’t quite as clever as DragonBox, it has a solid formula that focuses on important academic terms and visual learning. It’ll give struggling students valuable practice, and the Indiana Jones-esque temple exploration provides some fun context. However, since it uses the microphone, it’s best in smaller class settings or for use at home where kids can focus and there’s not a lot of background noise.

The Sports Network 2 - Classroom Inc. | K-12 Web Resources - English and Language Art | Scoop.it

It’s not easy to make a game about reading critically — one of the key CCSS skills — but The Sports Network 2 pulls it off. Students are thrown into the role of a cable sports show producer, and must make sure the show’s content is written well and on point. One of the side benefits of the game is how relatively accurately it portrays an actual job, so it gives students an insider’s look into the world of broadcasting and communications, and shows how language and reading skills can come in handy.
