Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2:46 PM

Plethora of educational gaming sites that are geared towards elementary students. I've used http://funbrain.com and http://abcya.com before with my Kindergartners. A center-orientated system could be effective in getting kids to rotate from computer to computer, entrenching them in different subjects such as reading, writing, spelling, and math.

Spelling & Vocabulary Website: SpellingCity

Spelling & Vocabulary Website: SpellingCity | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Looking for a Great app for developing spelling?

 

I've posted about SpellingCity.com website some time ago and I had to take a closer look when I heard they had produced a free app.

 

The app is in many ways very similar to the website, with ready made word lists that users just select...
 - one
 - click on the type of game or activity they want to play; there are seven different activity types: Unscranble - Spelling TestMe - HangMouse - Spelling TeachMe - Missing Letter - Alphabetize - Audio Word Match.

 

To get the best from the app Functional skills, Family Learning and other Practitioners, really have to have a SpellingCity account as this enables them to import their own word lists and to manage and track their learners' scores.

 

That said, they can create a basic account for free.

 

If your learners' spelling and vocabulary needs some work, why not get them using it.

 

You can download the app from the iTunes store but, Sadly there's no Android version available at the moment.

 

Remember: Teaching spelling and vocabulary is easy with Vocabulary SpellingCity! Learners can study and learn their word lists using vocabulary and spelling learning activities and games.

Classroom Games - Microsoft Office Games

Classroom Games - Microsoft Office Games | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

The University of North Carolina Wilmington’s Ed Games website hosts a variety of free, downloadable...
- PowerPoint,
- Word, and
- Excel games
...that are really easy to use on an IWB to add quizzes and to motivate your learners.

 

Practitioners can customise these games with their own content and once customised, can be...
- saved (for future use) and
- shared with colleagues.

 

Note: Some games are ready to use without modification. Many of the games replicate popular TV shows like Jeopardy, and Pyramid.

 

P.S. How about setting learners a challenge to customise a game?

Kinect in the Classroom

Kinect in the Classroom | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

One of the most interesting ways game-based learning (GBL) is being implemented is with the use of Microsoft’s Kinect. Kinect specifically is an accessory to the Xbox 360, where motion and gestures control game functions. From sports games, to “hack and slash,” the Kinect physically involves the player in gameplay. But why use it in the classroom? And how should you use it in the classroom? Today I present not only a great rationale for use the Kinect in the classroom, but also some specific ideas and resources for doing so.
