Eschools14: Games in learning

This is my first attempt to post from email, so I’m not sure what the format will be like. The text is interspersed with images, but I suspect the images will wind up out of place….

These are my notes for the session on games in learning, presented by Peter de Lilse and Janet Thomson.

  • What games did you play as a child?
  • What did you learn through them?
  • Are all games competitive? Fun? Easy? About winning and losing?
  • What is real learning?
  • How can games promote that?

Games: do’s and don’ts

Hint Hunt

Wuzzit Trouble

  • What games have you tried? For yourself? In class?
    • Mine craft – running a town, construction
    • Candy crush – perseverance

Why games?
