The fresh newsletter comes in the aftermath of a game-design workshop I gave for 2 groups of highly capable, highly professional, enthusiastic teachers, in affiliation with Europalso. It was a truly inspiring experience, the products of which you will see as a link in this volume of “The Joy of Teaching”. Dedicated to you, boys and girls!
Reading: “The nicest people in the world”. Quite promising. We definitely need more of that. Who are they? Read and find out.
Speaking: yesterday, while browsing with my students, we stumbled upon the 50 wackiest cars on earth. Laughter provoking? Discussion generating? Whichever way you look at it, it’s definitely worth a view.
Crafts: paper chicks. Simple project, lots of fun.
Training: gamification seems to be increasingly wriggling its way into teaching. Why not turn tried and tested activities into online games?
