10 Specific & Practical Ways Of Teaching With Video Games

by Terry Heick,

The idea of teaching with video games is an exciting concept leading to a challenging practice.

Right off the bat the topic is a bit polarizing, the whimsical connotation of “games” juxtaposing harshly with the rigorous tones of classical academia. But past that,…

The gift of HOPE

At the Freshman Transition Network we are always trying to find resources that can be used in the classroom to motivate and inspire kids.  This video is one such resource.  


Your students need to see this.  After they watch it, take an opportunity to talk about how they treat their fellow man.  Talk to them about Love and Forgiveness and Humility.  Take a moment to talk about judging others and the treating…

Educating Special Needs Children

Special Needs - Isn't that every child?

As a parent of a 14-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl, I am very careful whenever I use the words 'special needs' in connection with children.

On the one hand I believe that every child is a special needs child, simply because they are all individuals, each with their own special needs. Many of those special needs they have in common with other children – for example the need to be truly loved, cared for and… Continue

Questioning Accepted Standards. Do not ask me why, ask me why not?

I love to play the guitar and on the anniversary of Jimi Hendrix death this question got me thinking about what and how we teach our children.

Imagine you teach guitar and a kid walks in that is playing a left-handed guitar upside down. Most guitar players have picked up bad habits that the teacher will want to get rid of and sort out before moving on to bigger and better things. But this was one of the things that Jimi was renown for, and that many will suggest gave him his unique… Continue

Sharing: Video clips of sea life, gardens, butterflies, etc. set to relaxing music- useful with my students who have autism spectrum disorders

I created a set of high-definition videos for use on newer IWBs that I've found useful for students I work with who have autism spectrum disorders. I created shorter video clips for teachers to use in their lessons that also have a calming/relaxing effect on their students.

I'm in the process of experimenting with interactive video, using similar content.

Here is the link to my Classroom 2.0 video page:…

There are two new tools that content creators need to know about.

Why do they need to know about them? Because they are tools that people in media creation (Graphic Artists and Video Editors) are using every day in their own Industry Standard format. As a Graphic Artist will be familiar with Photoshop and a Video Editor will be familiar with Final Cut Pro or something like Premiere, these tools are making their way to the web. Although they may not be the exact tools, the functionality… Continue
