After our thundering speed presentation on Thursday here at SIRikt, where we blew up the world and put it back together, in virtual and real ways, we came back down to Earth today. We took our time, exploring some virtual environments, looking at their power in the classroom. Games, and how they can mix with the analogue spaces around us, impact on teaching and learning in children of all ages.
Games have formed part of our lives and cultures since the dawn of time. They are woven into the fabric of our communities. Every body loves playing games. Well, there are some people who are born to go through life frowning, and pointing, so I should say “Almost every body”.
Games also form a powerful catalyst for engaging young minds, and create valuable learning opportunities.
We took folk here on a journey – a shared learning journey – through some creative ways to integrate technology into our classrooms, and have a positive impact on confidence, creativity and standards.
