Game Over

Today was a landmark day!  My students finished presenting their game demos!  I am so proud of them, and happy that they have accomplished something great.  I spoke to them today about the entire experience.  They did have mixed emotions.  I was really surprised by the number of students that said they wished we had spent more time on the math end of things.  I think that if they would have had more time to actually develop a game, they would have seen the connection more.  I am going to work hard next semester to bring a better balance to the two sides of the coin.

I am also feeling accomplished, because I feel like I just reached a landmark as well.  I have just successfully finished my first Globaloria course, and I am sad to see my students go.  A few of my students really wish that they had more time to work on their game ideas, and I would like to see a finished product.

I almost forgot!  I was going to write about my experience with the structured Powerpoint and  The two lessons that I presented this way really seemed to have a big impact.  I am getting really excited to go full force with this teach-nology this coming semester!
