Wii-ing in the Classroom

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.
