Game Based Learning is quickly becoming a norm in terms of implementation and strategies in many classrooms around the globe, but with all the talk it sure can be overwhelming in terms of thinking about where to start.
Do I use a commercial off the shelf game?
Do I use an educational game?
How do I know if it is a good game?
What board games might I use?
As I work with teachers to implement game based learning, these are some of the first questions that come up. I have written many blogs about game based learning, and specifically about using video games, but I want to hear from the community.
If you were to give advice to a teacher who wanted to get started with using video games in the classroom, what would you tell them? What resources are available? How do you link it to learning objectives and standards?
I can't wait to read your ideas!
