I’ll take colors that end in urple for 500 Trebek. If you ever saw the SNL celebrity Jeopardy skit you know what I am talking about. These funny moments are just about every other word on those shows. Sadly, plain old Jeopardy as a review game is about as exciting to our students as it is to watch people reading the dictionary out loud. Ok, it might not be that bad, but still, it has the old game mechanics that are just outdated. Simply put, we can do better. In this episode, which is clearly the first in what will be a series, focus on designing review games that are both educational and fun! Adam Renard and Michael Matera share some of the design principles needed to build a fun game review. Each of these review games will be filled with meaningful game elements that engage and motivate students to continue to do their best. The best part about it is that you are encouraged to be the game designer. It is in you, even if you don’t know it yet. Just have a listen and see your ideas and excitement grow.

Game On!
