This week for my Emerging Instructional Technology course, we've been talking about how learning can occur through gaming. We were to try and play a game called Kingdom RushFacebook ;).
Now you might be asking, what is Kingdom Rush? Well pretty much you are battling against different creatures who are trying to attack your territory. There are many different types of weapons that you use to beat them: arrows, magic, militia and artillery. Before you can move on to different battles, you have to beat all the waves of enemies and you can then get rewards. The game is definitely a bit challenging at times, but it made me curious to try and explore different options to become successful.
During my gaming, I come to realize that it can really be a great learning experience.
So now that I have this in mind, I hope to create fun gaming experiences for my students that they will be still talking about in their 20's. :)
