There have been some really interesting threads running in the English Online listservs which I thought I'd share here:


Does anyone else here use gaming - or gaming principles - in this way, to support learning?

    Maybe it comes down to the quality of the game. Minecraft seems to have lots of great possibilities e.g. For designing your new school but I still struggle to see the educational benefits of some others.

    I was at a workshop with Kevin Honeycutt yesterday and he had a suggestion that goes off on a slight tangent from this discussion but is probably worth sharing. With his own son he had a requirement that once a week his son showed him something he was using his device for that was enhancing his learning. Maybe this would encourage some reflection on the purpose,of some game choices??
