Thank you for your appreciation. It's great to hear that you find it useful. I recommend starting small. Perhaps just one unit that is gamified. Or, you can use already existing games to engage students. I'm excited to hear about your passion for innovative education right from the get go, so go for it. But don't do it at the expense of burnout. :)

I simply love your Game-based Learning strategies. I am new to the education field and I am trying to find ideas that I can implement in my classroom. I am all for gaming in the classroom. Because of technology, children today are into games, which indeed keeps them engaged. Whether it's a board game or a video game. When I did my student teaching, I utilized a lot of games I created by paper or the use of a computer. Because students knew that's what I liked and so did they, the behavior in the class was at an all time low. They knew I always had some type of game to play. Although a lot of fun, many didn't realize they were also learning. I will be visiting your blog more often and looking for more amazing, innovative gaming ideas. As a first year teacher, do think it is acceptable for me to use gaming in the classroom?

Hi,

Thank you for your posting! I found it to be very informative and interesting. I am a fourth grade teacher and I teach all subjects. I do use games such as Jeopardy, Who wants to be a Millionaire?, etc. for math review to go over our unit before an upcoming assessment. I just wanted to clarify, do you teach the ENTIRE unit using games? I thought this seemed very neat; my kids would LOVE it! Do you have any advice for how to turn a math unit into a quest of sorts?

I just used an internet game

I just used an internet game in my class today. I was working on like terms with my students and some were having a hard time. I found this game that has a robot that picks up blocks with terms on it and you have to have the robot put the blocks in the matching tube (the tube looks like the green tunnels from Mario games). The tubes have a term on the outside. It was such a fun day for me and the students. I noticed the students understanding the concept of a like term more. The coefficient wasn’t bothering them today. I games are a great idea!

I would LOVE to play games with my students. I totally agree when they are playing games it is fun to them ,not realizing they are learning. I have a problems we only have 2 computers in my classroom of 30 to 32 students. Any suggestions on how to implement game time for this large group in a 70-80 minute block?
