My students are getting their game on!
If you don’t already know, this year I am running an elective course for year 9 students all about gaming. Pretty cool, huh? It’s part of our critical and creative thinking elective courses that were introduced for the first time this year. You can read more about my course, Game On, here.
Well, it’s almost been a week since our first class and I’m really stoked with how they are going. OK, well to be honest, I think initially the students were a bit surprised to see that an English teacher is running the course and not a multimedia teacher. They were probably more likely disappointed than surprised. When I introduced them to the course website and a quick overview of the four projects they will work on for the semester, they still didn’t seem very enthused. One girl even asked when she could transfer to another course. Sigh…
