Big news today from the world of guest blogging! The amazing Matt Miller — author of Ditch That Textbook — spotted some of my stuff on Twitter and thought it was worth sharing with the world. Here, I’ll let him tell you.
I saw John Meehan’s QR BreakIN activities on Twitter weeks ago and was hooked.
The idea was brilliant …
- Identify something students would learn that week.
- Infuse it with themes from a board game or video game they love.
- Break it up into several small challenges.
- Make learning a game!
In John’s version, his students use QR codes in the games, but this could be done without them — with as much or as little tech as you’d like.
In his guest post today, John shares several examples and templates for creating your OWN BreakIN games. Check it out!
