Cool Games and Interactives


I was looking for some games for year 10 and found some fun revision games for year 10 first period tomorrow (in a computer lab). They are a bit sick of the Multiple Choice SC Literacy generator at the Board of Studies site. I plan to use BBC Games for 14-16 years and some grammar games from Judging by their response last time I let them loose with some games there should be a lot of ‘peripheral learning’ going on. We might also have a look at Power proofreading and  an online crossword on technical language at Wicked

I also found Games for education which has templates so you can design your own. Haven’t tried it yet but I will. This one could be really handy for creating my own resources for the Interactive White board. Another useful site in my search was Teacher Tap: Interactive Tools which had some good links to game sites.

I teach kids. Mostly English but sometimes good manners, how to have fun learning, that you are never too old to learn something new, that we all make mistakes and what we do about mistakes is who we become, that the future is not some place we are going to but a place we are creating and... I like learning and adapting new technology in the classroom I'm good with my new IWB, websites and email but hopeless with mobile phones!
