"Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.”
- asserts a well-known Chinese proverb that is often attributed to Confucius.
The beauty of using games in the classroom is that while students are fully engaged in playing a game and having fun, important learning takes place without effort or stress.
While many teachers turn to games as a reward for hard work or as a well-deserved lesson break, at their best games can provide us with a model for highly active and engaged learning activities.
The good news is that many teaching points can be turned into games, or activities with a competitive and fun angle. Since games are an excellent way to motivate students and liven up your classroom.
Please share your knowledge and leave a comment about the games that you and your students enjoy!
