Doodle with Moodle
If there were tons of games then everyone would be more people playing games than using moodle
for other purposes.
Well maybe i would play math games on it! Other people also might play math games on it!
I'm not saying just have math games either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
well taylor mrs moore has a link for cool math for kids which is math games and every one plays
on it so y not have math games on moodle!?!
That's the exact opposite of what I've been saying... There are a bunch of sites to do that on! Also, if Mrs. Moore would have to take them off because people aren't doing the regular Gen Y stuff then why should she put them on in the first place?
And maybe we should stop replying to this post... the boxes are getting a little small don't you think?
What its not about the boxes its about the games. There should be math games on it, because i know that i would play!
WE NEED MATH GAMES PLEASE, PLEASE THE MATH CHAT IS KEWL BUT I THINK WE NEED SOME GAMES TO PLAY ON, IN THE FREE TIME. THANK YOU FOR READING MY PART.
P.S. I AGREE WITH AMANDA WIEGMAN 100 PERCENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
one or two games wouldn't hurt. it would be for when you have extra time you can have something to do besides read or something. you know you would probably play to!!!!
First off i'm not changing my idea's on the situation but i think that people should stop replying everyday unless it is essential
Okay--I am finally going to weigh in on this--the most serious of discussion topics. ;)
I have actually been following this discussion as it developed. It was interesting to hear everyone's ideas about games and Moodle and how the two should be used. I do agree with the people who said that Moodle is really an academic environment; the purpose of Moodle is to extend what we can do in class. The advantage we have with Moodle is that we don't have to be limited to the forty minutes that we see each other during the school day.
However, I think that games can have value in an academic environment and could be included in Moodle at appropriate times and places. For example, just last week I added a game called Fraction Track to Pre-Algebra 2 because it will help everyone improve their skills with fractions. There are also other games that will help people improve their reasoning and thinking skills. While these games can be valuable, it is more difficult to tie them into a specific lesson and they won't receive a lot of play time in class. Many of you have found the games that fall into this category on my website; they are fun and help develop skills, but I can't support spending a lot of class time playing them.
I have thought of an interesting arrangement though that can make use of the WMS Moodle community and hopefully feed your need for good games. :) I liked the idea of the weekly mathematician, so we may explore this topic more here, but I thought maybe we could do a weekly game review. My plan is to create a new course under the WMS category and then create a forum there for us to post game reviews. Then we can also use this course for other forums that come up. I need a name for this course though--what should I call it? And, what requirements do we want to set for the game discussion? Do we want only games that are available online for free? Do we want video games? Do we want computer games that you can buy? Let me hear more discussion and then I will set up the new course and we can move this discussion there.
Thanks for your input--keep it up!
maybe not all games would be boring!
and yes we should have more assignments on moodle
Doodle Noodle and Poodle all rhyme with Moodle can you think of any others that rhyme with Moodle?
Everyone who thinks there should be games on moodle is right!!!.......IF THEY ARE EDUCATIONAL!!!!! There shouldn't only be math games but for other classes too. Thanks soooooo much for listening to me!!!!!
