Your students are playing everyday on their iPod,iTouch, iPhone, iPad or laptop. You could ban devices and prohibit gaming at school, or you could embrace that energy for learning. How do you all use game-based learning in your classroom to help you meet standards?

Times Attack from Big Brainz is an example of what I am referring to.

IXL math is also a great site.

Hi John,

I teach numeracy to adult learners who mostly did not achieve a maths qualification at school. I encourage my students to use on-line games to develop their basic numeracy skills. I really like the BBC Skillswise website. Not only does it have great resources that I can use when planning my lessons but it has lots of fun, interactive games. I usually have the website up and running during lessons, suggesting students try out some of the games. These are usually linked to the topic that we have been looking at in the lesson. Interestingly, the students seem to view this activity as a 'break' from formal teaching. The games also help to embed general literacy and IT skills in a way that the students are not real aware of!

I will check our IXL math too - thanks for recommending it.
