Did I really just start to write a page on video games ? I sure did !! Talking recently with my dearly beloved 1STI2D class (hi guys !!), we got on to the subject of video games and how they can be truly educational. I told them about the conference that changed my whole game plan. In Cyberlangues Versailles 2011, there was a conference on the whole ethos of video games. you can catch up with it here : http://www.crdp.ac-versailles.fr/ressources-et-services/podcasts-audio/Jeux-video-et-enseignement-22
One of my students, Ian (not his real name), sent me a link which I give you here : https://soundcloud.com/theeconomist/more-than-just-a-game-video
I am now looking at ways of introducing the topic and the principles of video games into the classroom.
