Having to answer questions on a worksheet or produce a page of text can be quite daunting and stressful for some students. It can also create a negative perception of a students’ learning environment.
As an alternative to worksheets, games can be used as a less stressful way for students to demonstrate their knowledge, skill and understanding of a topic. Being less stressed will help students to have a more positive perception of their learning environment and give a true indication of their own learning.
Playing a range of content-specific games can increase memory! As they play a game, students need to remember important details about a topic but also use their working memory to think and act quickly.
Games that were made by the students can be some of the most effective. As students construct a game they are required to use their memory of specific content to create questions and answers suitable for the game, then use their memory of the topic to play the game.
Playing games in the classroom increases class cooperation. Classroom games can also be used as a team-building exercise!
Students need to work together as a team when playing as a whole class against the teacher, or in small team groups when playing games with each other.
In this way, students learn how to take turns, build respect, listen to others and play fairly.
