By Neil Rickus on

As we know, children love video games! The opportunity to “play” video games in the classroom can help with pupil engagement and motivation, although their use has to be carefully considered, as recently discussed in this New York Times article –

Our video games training session shows you how to incorporate video games into your lessons. In the mean time, have a look at our free Task card – Teaching forces with Mario Kart, which can be found here. The tasks are designed to also allow iPads and netbooks to used throughout your sessions. Science lessons will never be the same!
