Edu Games – Yay or Nay?

29 May

Well officially the 1st ever entry here. Not exactly a newbie in the blogsphere, but relatively new to a techlog šŸ™‚

Have been working in the IT industry since graduating from poly in the early 2000s. what started off as a job to earn money for further studies and some other crisis, turned out to pave the path for my future – Technology in Education.

I will not delve into details. else, I will need a lengthy post dedicated to my career path (:

In the midst of preparing for the upcoming “new term” at work and for an on-going project,Ā I was in search for game builders/ creators/ generators/ whatever-you-call-it. These are to aid in producing games for lower order thinking skills (LOTS) activities.Ā For such activities, educators should be able to create their own games in a fuss-free manner so that both the educators and students will enjoy gamesĀ for teaching and learning.

I am now going to share with you gameĀ generatorsĀ that I have introduced to the English Language dept (ELL) Ā in the Institution I work at:-

I wish I was able to share with you what some of the ELL studentsĀ from our institution produced so that you can get an idea of what you can do with the links above. Unfortunately, IP rights do not belong to me so no-go. I made some samples, though. Will try to update this post with those links, if my memory doesn’t fail on me :S

Some other interesting finds will be shared in the upcoming entries.

Remember, this is just the start šŸ™‚ You will certainly keep seeing more of “me”, I promise!
