I've been frustratingly bored in my educational technologies class, but hopefully this will come to an end. My professor has offered me a chance to showcase some technology that can be applied in the classroom.
I've been talking with some of my friends and i've decided i want to do something related to video games. I'm looking for games which can teach a concept or develop a skill in the K-12 classrooms. For example,
Game: Not Tetris 2
Grade: 9th grade
Valuable concepts: teaches about properties of momentum and inertia.
In case you're wondering, a lot of the people in the classroom have little experience with computers and others are comfortable checking their email and facebook. So if things go well, i can expose people to a new world of software that can be implemented in the classroom. This is our chance to shine basically.
