The Most Engaging Games for the Classroom
One thing games are really good at is engagement. Unfortunately, the games students want to play and the games teachers want them to play don't always align. These are the exception, balancing just-one-more-turn play with rock-solid learning, leaving students and teachers happy. All of these games aren't just absorbing, they also offer students opportunities to build valuable thinking skills and, in some cases, content knowledge. A few also get students creating or experimenting with systems, getting students thinking conceptually.
