Theme: Many teachers are beginning to experience the benefits of using Computer games in the classroom. This talk aims to build on this and share insights, experience and knowledge of this ever expanding field. Drawing on my experience as an English Language Teacher I would like to talk about how easy it is to take authentic computer/ video games and adapt them for our pedagogical purposes. I hope to prove that you don't have to be a gamer to be using such games with your learners.
