Welcome back to an episode devoted to springtime! Yes, spring is in the air here at Boise State, and the Cool Teachers want to tell you about ways you can celebrate this season of rebirth and renewal–in your own classroom.
In today’s episode, Barbara talks A LOT about the new Nintendo 3DS, what it is and why it is so cool, and how we might consider using it in the classroom. For starters, read a recent blog post about the Nintendo DS and ways teachers might use it in the classroom: http://itcboisestate.wordpress.com/2010/12/22/nintendods_classroom/
Chris tells us about his and Lisa Dawley’s new 3D Game Lab: http://3dgamelab.com. Sign up today to participate in this exciting new way to integrate gaming into your curriculum AND meet State Standards. Watch the video below to find out more:
Then, Barbara tells us why the Nintendo 3DS might be one of the best mobile devices students could use in the elementary and middle school classrooms. We would love to hear from you and find out what you are doing with technology in your classroom. Are you using the new Nintendo 3DS in your classroom, for instance?
Chris finishes with an explanation of Chorewars (http://chorewars.com) and will now start cleaning his house. Thank goodness!
As always, thanks for listening and please post your comments and ideas. We love hearing from you.
