The Best Online Learning Games Of 2012 — So Far

I will share 7 best Games of language learning based  http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/ .

These games can help us to encourage new language knowledge, especially here English language. We can also know our level of understanding English (for non-native English). Some of these needs to login in order to play the game.

1. R U Revising

It is new from the BBC and lets you answer your choice of English, Math, or Science questions. It has separate links to versions for each subject, so the link here is to the main game page. It’s particularly nice for English Language Learners because it provides audio support for the text.

2. Bitesize Bingo

is another game from BBC Schools. It’s played like…bingo, and you can choose questions from pretty much any subject. It provides a short explanation, and then the question you have to answer refers back to it. It’s particularly accessible to English Language Learners since audio support is provided for the explanation, the questions, and the multiple choice answers.

Play The News, a current events game where users play roles and make predictions, was the number-one ranking game in The Best Online Learning Games — 2008. Unfortunately, it’s been dormant for quite awhile — until now. They have just relaunched the platform in conjunction with University of Missouri’s Reynolds Journalism Institute. You can register and play it here.

3. Zondle

It is a pretty darn impressive for online learning games. It has tons of content in different subjects, and, if you can’t find what you need, it’s easy to just add your own. The ingenious part is that once you pick the topic you study, you have the option of studying the info in forty different games! Plus, teachers can create their own virtual classroom and track student progress. And, it’s free.

4. QuizBreak!

 lets te achers easily create Jeopardy-like games for free that will be hosted online. What makes it really top-notch is that you can add images, video and audio to the questions, too. It’s one of several excellent and free online apps that is made available to teachers by The Center For Language Education and Research at Michigan State University (CLEAR). They have been included on several previous “The Best…” lists.

5. Cast Your Vote

 is an interactive game on the iCivics site. There are a lot of interactives there, but I think most of them are overly-complicated — even for native English speakers. “Cast Your Vote,” though, puts you in the role of a person at a political debate asking questions and evaluating the answers of the people running for office. It’s pretty good and useful.

6. Spelling City

It  is already on several of my “The Best…” lists for learning games, and it’s now gotten even better — and changed it’s name. It’s now called called “Vocabulary and Spelling City” and has added quite a few new games, including ones using “sentence scrambles.” If you haven’t visited in awhile, I’d encourage you to do so now.

7. Mission US

It  is a new site that will be providing interactive games to help students learn about United States history. It’s funded by the Corporation For Public Broadcasting and the National Endowment For The Humanities. Right now, it just has a couple of interactives online. It’s main one, For Crown Or Colony, is a very well designed “choose your own adventure” game (you have to register in order to play). The site also has a lot of supporting materials for teachers.

This one may not qualify as a game but it’s fun: “Twist Our Words” is a game from Channel 4 in Great Britain where you can first click on a selection of words to make a sentence. Then, a British “celebrity” will be shown speaking the words you chose. It now also lets you add your own “custom” word.
