A second day at St Mark’s C.E. Junior School, Salisbury, in Wiltshire, this time, with the children.
Thank you to Matthew Steale from Nomansland and Harptworth Primary School for his reflections about the two days.
The introduction to the virtual world of ‘Myst’ on the first day was fantastic. It was also great to pick up so many useful tips on how to make the use of ICT more exciting for the children.
Seeing all of the theory from day one put into practice with the children on the second day was brilliant. The enthusiasm of the children for the lessons was a joy to behold, and the quality of the writing they produced was remarkable. I have rarely seen a class of children so reluctant to put down their pencils and go out to play!
Thank you for some great ideas, which I’m sure will go down a storm back in my own classroom.
Moshi Monsters is a free online game for children, in which they adopt a monster and look after it. Children whose parents give their approval can become members on the site, and can adopt a Moshi Monster. Children care for their monster by solving puzzle games, which earn their monster virtual rewards called Rox. They can spend Rox on virtual items like food, furniture and other treats and toys for their monster.
Over time their monster will increase in level, be able to visit new locations in Monstro City, and earn all kinds of in-game rewards for playing.
