#Kidsedchatnz - Twitter for kids: Gaming

Out class has not been inbvolved in the Twitter-for-kids #kidsedchatnz this year but last year we did.  The topic for conversation this week is GAMING!  I know some of you will want to take part.

The 'Chat' takes place during Daily 5 on Thursday 2-3pm.  Before you participate, you will need to do some preparation.  Take a look at the questions and the challenges.

1. Complete one of the challenges.
2. Prepare a 'Tweet Sheet' answer for one of the questions.

If you have completed these tasks by Thursday then you will be our Tweeters!

But first let's play some games! 
Before you take part in Kidsedchatnz this week try to do at least one of the following:

  • Spend some time in class playing any game (online or traditional eg, Minecraft, Scrabble, Monopoly, Once Upon A Time).
  • Build your own game and play it.
  • Reinvent a game.
  • Fill in the Google Doc for types of games you play in the classroom?
  • Art of gaming - produce a piece of art that celebrates gaming.
When you do a task make sure you take some photos or videos to share with other classes during the chat.

Questions for this week:

Q1. What are your favourite games and why?

Q2. How does gaming help with your learning?

Q3. What qualities/values/skills have you learnt from gaming?

Q4. How many learning games are being used in your classroom and which of these are the best to play?

Q5. What makes a game fun, interesting and educational?

Q6. If you could reinvent a game, what would you choose to add or change and why?

Q7. Does your class use gaming to collaborate or connect with others children from your school or elsewhere?

Q8. Do you read books or watch videos about gaming, how does this make you a better gamer or learner?

Q9. If your teacher could introduce 1 game into the classroom, what should it be and how would it be used for learning?
