Alyssa Dorr's curator insight, December 17, 2014 1:59 AM

I thought that this game was really useful for getting to know all different aspects of Europe. I really like how it was separated into a variety of different categories that focused on different things in Europe. Of course I was familiar with the countries category. Some things that I was not familiar with before finding this game was all the bodies of water in Europe. I am now aware of the different lakes, seas, and rivers in Europe. I thought it was really cool how it went into some real detail and included aspects like the ports, volcanoes, monarchies, and the battles. I definitely was not aware with any of these before seeing this game. I think this is a very useful game if you wish to know more about Europe or maybe even if you're traveling there and want to get some background knowledge.

An absolutely great and fun way to learn and explore different geographic locations.  Anytime learning can be made fun or turned into a game is always a win-win.  I found myself screwing around with these mini games and before I knew it, 45 minutes had passed, and I was not as good at Geography as I thought I was.  I will be back to play/learn more!

Lena Minassian's curator insight, February 18, 6:59 PM

This is an interesting way to learn geography in a more interactive way. This link provides many different games that allow you to not only play a game but learn while you do it! These games can test capitals, rivers, monarchies, countries, regions, peninsulas, battles, etc. All of these relate to Europe and can provide different learning techniques for anyone who is interested in them.

I just came across this page which may be highly useful to the teachers. You can learn how to create a Tic Tac Toe Game, Connect 4 Game, Jeopardy Games, and Interactive Quiz Slides using PowerPoint. The site also gives you free templates for creating these games.

some easy and great ideas to jazz up powerpoints

How To Help Your Students Embrace Failure through Game-based Learning

How To Help Your Students Embrace Failure through Game-based Learning | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

"Whether our students fear the dark, monsters, heights, some other imagined horror, or something more real such as family troubles or bullying, everyone is afraid of something. For students in our schools those fears probably include something that is an inherent part of our society and our educational system – failure."

What would happen if you used game-based learning in your classroom and took advantage of the of the fact that students do fail when they play games, providing opportunities for them to understand how they may also fail in class and more on. Three strategies are explored in this post.

* Encourage cooperative play

* Implement structures for active engagement

* Embrace failure as a learning opportunity

In addition to providing detailed explanations of these strategies the post also provides a look at 21 smart games for game-based learning and some as well as links to locations where you may find educationally relevant games.

MLC Junior School Hub's curator insight, December 2, 2014 3:28 AM

Everyone is afraid of something. However, we need to encourage our students not to fear failure, but embrace it as a natural part of the learning process.

One area where failure is naturally integrated is games-based learning where progress is built on the concept of experimentation - failure and adaptation.
