47+ Alternatives to Using YouTube in the Classroom

However, many teachers cannot access YouTube in their classrooms. That is why I originally wrote what became one of the most popular posts to ever appear on . That post is now fourteen months old and I've come across more alternatives in that time. Also in that time span some of the resources on the list have shut down. So it's time to update the list. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. The Best Online Learning Games Of 2016 – Part Two. Time for another end-of-year ”The Best…” list.

The Best Online Learning Games Of 2016 – Part Two

As usual, In order to make it on this list, games had to: * be accessible to English Language Learners. * provide exceptionally engaging content. * not provide access to other non-educational games on their site, though there is one on this list that doesn’t quite meet this particular criteria. * be seen by me during the last six months of 2016.

The Best Online Learning Simulation Games & Interactives — Help Me Find More

As part of that research, I’ve been exploring online simulations that could “transfer” learning to different situations students might realistically encounter in classes or outside of school. I’ve posted about quite a few of them over the year, and you can find them on various “The Best” lists, but I don’t have one dedicated list to them.

I thought it was time to create one. I did a quick and dirty search of my Best lists (particularly The Best Places To Read & Write “Choose Your Own Adventure” Stories) to identify a number of them, and have them listed below. It’s by no means exhaustive (I know there are a lot of science-oriented ones out there, as well as others that connect math to concrete “real-world” situations), though, and I’m hoping readers will contribute more.

However, if you play these games in class either at the start of class as a warm up or at the end of class as a reward, it will sure motivate your students one way or another. Here is a list of the best games to play in a high school classroom. Greedy Pig Year level: Early – mid secondaryEquipment: 1 x die, a whiteboard to tally the scoresDuration: 10 – 15 minutes (this may significantly vary depending on student engagement)Aim: To tally up as many points as you can before a 3 is rolled Rules: This class game is good to introduce probability. Variances: If you wish, the number ‘3’ doesn’t have to be the greedy pig number but instead the students may choose what the number will be (this is generally decided by the winner for the next game). You may also wish to spice this up by adding 2 dice to the game and making the greedy pig number 7.

Variances: Words will vary depending on the year level. For example#1: ‘What are you doing?’ Crash Scene Investigation - CSI - Forensic Science - Math.

Journey is designed to present several computational thinking patterns in an incremental fashion. Sokoban is a good second game design activity for students who have already completed the Frogger tutorials. PacMan is a good first game design activity for high school students with no programming background. More games: Space Invaders Sims-like games AgentCubes games (3D) coming soon!
