Blog Post 12

Our assignment is to create and carry out an assignment. Cool! After conferring with my first grade daughter about education and technology, I decided to share the wonderful world of Wii in the classroom with my fellow students.

So here is the assignment:

Read Wii in the Classroom by Patty Murray. Explore all the links provided in the blog post. Leave a comment. Write a paragraph about why you think using a Wii in the classroom is a good idea. If you have reasons why you think it is not a good idea, write about those concerns too.

My Summary
I had no idea there were so many benefits to having a Wii in the classroom. I think Patty Murray did a great job of convincing a teacher to consider using the game system. There are many educational games to help children in all grade levels learn, such as Jump Start and Reader Rabbit games. Even Parenting.com lists its review of the best educational Wii games. The fact that you have to stand up and move around to play the Wii is another plus, as it promotes being active. The white board could even be used at some schools where they cannot afford more expensive interactive white boards. She even shares a way to donate a Wii system to schools in need. She did a great job writing this post and has shared some valuable information with teachers and parents.

  2. Oh no! LOL Well, it would be funny if it was not causing this assignment to now be late... I forgot to post my paragraph about her site onto this blog post. If you check the link to her site and read the comments on her blog, you will see I did leave her comment on 11/11 and the picture above is of her, it's from her blog post. I am editing this comment now to conclude this assignment. Sorry about that, Jacey! Please come back and read my summary about her article. Thanks!
