I will admit, I’ve never been a fan of video games. But I would like to learn more about how they can be beneficial, especially for education purposes.
I found a few ideas through a search with combinations of the following hashtags on the ol’ twitter.
#education #gaming #learning
Here are some leads:
- Edudemic building lesson plans around games:
- Mindshift Blog about digital games:
- Video: Science based video games
- Never Alone game on Inuit culture: Article in the New Yorker
I will report what I’ve learned! Maybe I can design some lesson plans around them or have students present on their favourite games.
