Season 1, Episode 11: The Importance and Benefits of Playing Games with Your Students

Season #1

Everyone loves to play games, right? Are you using games and learning activities in your lessons with your students?

In this episode, we talk about the benefits of playing games with our students, the different purposes these games serve, and tips to keep in mind when planning what games to use (and how) in your lessons.

So, tune in if you’ve ever wondered, “Can I use games in my lesson?” or “What games should I use?”

We also answer a listener’s question about becoming a dyslexia specialist.
