ISTE about using the Nintendo Wii to support math instruction. I've mentioned it a bunch of times on BusyLibrarian, but now we have something in print for you to digest and hopefully even try out in your library while we add a couple finishing touches to the manuscript.
Class. Please open your April 2012 issue of School Library Journal to pages 18 and 19.
Wii Learn: surprise elementary students with a fun way to learn math is featured in this month's The Gaming Life column and it's super cool to appear during School Library Month! You can read the article here.
Gamers? This will be right up your alley.
Mathy folks? You're going to eat this up.
Teacher librarians? This just may be that new idea you've been looking for to revitalize your instruction (confession... that's why I started exploring it in the first place!).
I'll let the article do the talking, but if you're craving more Wii support, lessons, ideas, or inspiration, look no further than the following links.
Wii Learning wiki - This is our host site for everything additional that won't squeeze into the book. Lots and lots of lessons (with more being added), opportunities for community members to contribute and connect, and resources to help successfully develop a Wii-integrated math program.
Wii on the Busy Librarian - This is just a quick link to every time I've mentioned the Wii on this blog. A couple times have been playful. Some may be insightful. A bunch may even be motivational.
TL Virtual Cafe - The Teacher Librarian Virtual cafe hosts amazing monthly webinars that are free to join and always well-attended. We had the honoring of sharing what we do last January and the Elluminate session was captured along with any chat text and supporting resources for others who missed the first go around to enjoy.
