I haven’t had time to read Phil’s article yet. All this talk of games reminds me of this wonderful iELT plenary by Sarah Priestley called, “Do students really want FUN in the ELT classroom?” The transcript for it is here: https://ielt18.innovateevents.com/blog/plenary-do-students-really-want-fun-in-the-elt-classroom/

And here is another article from The British Council: Why classroom games can be much more than lesson fillers

Thank you for sharing those, Anne! Here’s the article via Paul Raine by Reinhardt & Sykes (2014):
Games and play dynamics are proliferating in social, professional, and educational domains. This special issue brings together a collection of articles examining game and play activity in second language teaching and learning. Each addresses the topic from a unique perspective and represents game and play as part of complex ecologies of practice. The approaches include observation of out-of-school L2 gaming practices, adaptation of commercial, off-the-shelf games in the classroom, application of a game-based L2 learning environment, and the study of ‘gameful’ learning through play in social networks.

I went through the transcript that Phil sent from last week’s chat and clicked on every link (and found links for things that were just mentioned). Here they all are.
Win, Lose or Draw
Cards Against Humanity (NB: Not necessarily appropriate for a classroom!)
Apples to Apples
The Coffee Pot Game
The Marshmallow Challenge
The Internet is amazing.

Some of the things that were mentioned in Friday’s session:
Something about Jack Richards (I missed what this was about – does anyone have a link?)
And Tokyo Global Gateway (again, I missed what this referred to – maybe someone can add more info or a link)
Have a great weekend, everyone!
