Earlier this week I experimented with using a Nintendo Wii in one of my English language classes. I had been thinking about it for a while and, after quietly gathering a few bits and pieces, surprised my young students with it for our final pre-summer lesson.
It was a great success, I connected the console to the classroom’s overhead projector and projected it onto the room’s large Multimedia board. It was a great sight. 🙂
For this first experimental lesson I chose to use ‘My first Songs‘ which is a nursery rhyme karaoke game. The children found it quite a challenge, but it was one that they certainly enjoyed.
I am really looking forward to incorporating the console further into my future programmes.
