Teach it Fun!
Presenter: Alvaro Peña (Lincoln)
Location: HS Room 403
Learning needs to be fun. In the last few years I came up with a few class games to use in my classes. Feedback from students and assessment indicate that some of them are both fun and effective teaching tools. I would like to share those games with other teachers, invite them to play and perhaps, learn about other enjoyable ways of teaching. Engagement is a key component of learning. Make it fun and learning will simply happen.
