Goal There is growing evidence indicates that games allow students to focus well enough to learn better. And that Internet has had a significant effect on the way 21st century students think and learn; and using games (not necessarily video games) for teaching is one way to shift to a more appropriate learning format for the digital generation. Game-based learning teaches students to follow directions, make decisions and discover new information. Peer learning involved in game instruction allows discussion, reflection and problem solving. This course will show teachers the different resources on web and find the best game to effective teaching.
Message 1. Why are games a good teaching strategy? 2. What are the elements for an effective game in teaching and learning? 3. What are the resources we can have for game teaching?
