One of our technology people passed this site along to me, so I thought I would share it with all of you.
Any elementary teacher that can get a little lab time might appreciate this site. It has a huge variety of educational games, which would not only entertain kids but would also enhance the aptitude of Play.
Dan Pink mentions in A Whole New Mind that our age of abundance allows more people to look for fun things to do. And in education, we are constantly competing with “fun” things in order to find a place for academics.
As you may know, I am a big proponent of incorporating video games and video game pedagogy into the classroom. So in the name of “research”, I did play some math games from funbrain.com. The conclusion: I had fun doing math!
I know that most of you have hundreds of sites that you might use, and please feel free to share those with all of us. But one more tool to enhance play couldn’t hurt!Share
