UPDATE: Games Based Learning-by Julie Johnson

The past couple of weeks have been an amazing lead up to my games based learning resource project, with numerous newspaper and radio interviews--the last being my interview this morning with Wei Chen of CBC Radio One. What an honour!

My Wii project starts this week. I'll be using the Mario Kart game in a literacy & math context, following in the footsteps of other great games based learning educators that I have encountered on Twitter.

If you would like more information about games based learning, or to see what other teachers have been doing with the Wii and Xbox and Nintendo DS in their classrooms, please go to my resource page at http://gbl.betterthanworksheets.com/ (link is also on the side bar).

I will soon be detailing my own experiences with games based learning on an upcoming associated blog site.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at jujohnson@mail1.scdsb.on.ca or find me on Twitter at @JulieeJohnsonn. Also check out our school page: http://www.goodfellowps.com/.

Many many thanks to Wei Chen for having me on her show!

Julie Johnson
