Wii video games

Tassia Yeo shared this link in the diigo ICTs and Pedagogy group “Integrating ICT into mathematics”.  It captured my interest for assignment 2 and from post I found a section about using the Wii to teach counting on and counting back for addition and subtraction here.  A very interesting way of bringing a real world activity (bowling) and mathematics together. Unfortunately, how many schools will have a Wii as part of their resources?  I can see this as being a great warm up to a mathematics lesson but is this really something that we can introduce into the class as an ICT that will extend a child’s learning?

Now back to that website to see what else I can see…..
