- What is this? This is a clear example of how to connect a teaching method, simple materials, and careful teacher mediation to help students move from playing a game to participating in society. In addition to the hi-definition example, there are simple worksheets for teachers to use to plan their own links between games, methods, materials, mediation and goals.
- Why did you make it? I thought that the example from my class would spark some ludic language pedagogy joy in others. I certainly enjoy these teaching moments. These moments didn’t happen for me before I started thinking more about how to help students participate in society with/around a game and “good teaching.”
- Who is it for? It’s for teachers who can’t imagine the nitty gritty of a ludic language classroom focused on social participation with and around games.
