December 2013: Dave Dodgson - Using games to engage, motivate and educate language learners

Watch a recording of this webinar looking at the use of games to motivate, engage and educate language learners.

About the webinar

Video games are a long established part of many people’s recreational habits, and have the power to engage and motivate players. Just like any other resource we use in class, if used in the right way, games can provide a powerful stimulus and solid context for acquiring and developing language skills. This session will present ways in which the topic of games, or the playing of games in the English language classroom can be used to engage, motivate and educate language learners.
