    Intel Teach Live - November 2011 - Wii Inspire Kids - Gaming in the Classroom




      Educational Games have certainly come a long way since Oregon Trail, Number Munchers, Where in the World is Carmen San Diego? (although we still think those are still fun to play).  Now students are involved in kinesthetic games with gaming consoles, collaborative games played synchronously across timezones, and even play on their phones.  It’s amazing how far technology has taken us in under 30 years.


      As a follow up to our November 2011 Intel Teach Live - Wii Inspire Kids - Gaming in the Classroom, we’re asking you to share some of your favorite games and how they help teach curriculum and 21st century skills (critical thinking, collaboration, communication, problem solving, and creativity).


      What types of games are we looking for? Online games, console games, interactive whiteboard games, mobile device games, and even board games are welcome!


      Share your ideas between November 14 and December 15 to be entered into a monthly drawing for a Wii Console.  This thread will continue to remain active after the incentive period. We look forward to your contributions.

      Note: This drawing will only become active when a minimum of 10 participants respond which means in some cases, the drawing will take place after the above mentioned date. For a complete description and eligibility of Engage community drawings, click on the Intel Bunny Person.
      The drawing was conducted and the prize was awarded.

      Eligibility: Intel® Teach Engage drawings are open only to individuals who (i) are not residents of Burma (Myanmar), Cuba, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, or Syria (ii) and, (iii) are at least eighteen (18) years of age or the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence at the time of entry, whichever is greater. Employees of Intel Corporation, Clarity Innovations, and any of their parent and affiliate companies as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings and children) and household members of each such employee are not eligible.
