Learning to collaborate? – Games can help

Did anything come out of our collaboration using the Xbox game viva piñata yes it did!

A recent Visit From Ewan McIntosh Reminded me of some key factors

  • A shared interest or goal makes for a good opportunity to share: blogs and information. It creates that purpose for communication
  • Problems often require communication to solve: a puzzle is a good place to start a collaboration
  • When you are describing something new and dynamic you can’t rely on others you have a unique experience to describe
  • The imaginary world of games reflects the real world, presenting lots of opportunity to think and bring ideas together

Next Term a Syndicate at school has decided to put an Xbox in each class and use them for Creative Writing. I am excited by the  prospect of this an hope that I can be involved in some way. Will blog about this as it takes place.

  • There is still a lot of reluctance to recognise the


    of Games in Learning
  • Viva la revolution
