Learning is about empowerment.  There is a skill in learning how to learn.  Its the purpose and the service I provide to adults as a trainer/consultant.

Juan Juan's curator insight, October 24, 2017 11:32 PM
Playing games in the classroom are the best way to break the ice when your students seem to be bored, tired, ansious, etc. In this scoop you will find many ideas to get your class active and to break boredom. The best you can do in an EFL class is to make your students forget the are learning a language by having them live the language. When they live the language they experience a different dimension of the reality because they are so excited about what they are doing that they just want to express their emotion no matter in what code.
Camilo Ceballos Rozo's curator insight, March 7, 11:33 AM
Proposing games in the classroom is one of the best ways to break the ice when your students are bored, tired or anxious. They will be excited when using the language in real moments. 
 
Daniela Tabares Restrepo's curator insight, May 24, 6:40 PM
These are good ideas for avoiding bored or tired students in the classrooms. Implementing games in an academic environment is a way for increasing students' interest for learning. There are a lot of games that you can play with the students durimg the classes such as role plays, hot potato, guessing games, so on. Thus, you avoid monotony which is very disgusting.
