Shona Whyte's curator insight, February 5, 2013 10:44 PM

Adam Simpson has this blog post about using the Blockbusters game format in EFL classes.  We hear a lot about "gamification" in education in general, and I was expecting something for teenagers with technology.  

 

But no, it's a low-tech game, and can be used even for academic English with advanced adult learners: "I love using blockbusters for teaching. I regularly use it at the university where I teach, just before their exam. I give them 25 typical mistakes they make with their academic writing and get them to correct them, then play in teams as a revision exercise." (Gabrielle Jones)

Teresa MacKinnon's comment, March 17, 2013 1:53 AM
lovely to see blockbusters available in the digital age! I used it for language teaching back in the 1980's on an OHT and it was alwyas popular. I would like to see a digital version of Pointless as it would be great for vocabulary revision :)
