PowerPoint Presentation:

Class Tools www.classtools.net You can quickly and easily create a variety of interactive educational games, activities and diagrams for learning and reviewing factual material with Class Tools. The Free Flash templates can be used "as is" or may be customized to create interactive games and activities in multiple formats from a single set of 10 - 25 questions and answers on any given topic. Speed and difficulty of play increases incrementally with each new level of the game, which is scored both for time and accuracy. See this link to a You Tube video explaining how to use the Arcade Game Generator on Class Tools : http:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBQ47s1qp1Y The Dustbin game is excellent for grammar practice!

Zondle www.zondle.com Zondle is a provider of free games designed to help students practise recalling information. Zondle offers hundreds of combinations of topics and games or you can create your own. When you sign into Zondle select a subject area and topic. After selecting a topic Zondle will generate a list of games based on that topic that you can play. Registered users of Zondle can embed the games into their own websites and blogs.

Activiscope www.activiscope.com Go to the Free Section and you can quickly create four flash-based exercises from one set of Fre / Eng or Ger / Eng vocab: Labelling, Matchup, Memory/Pairs and Snap. You can then save the games to your computer and add them to the school’s network for students to access.

5. Quizlet www.quizlet.com Quizlet is a free flash cards and study games website where you can add vocab and images from any source. I’ve uploaded the entire set of KS3 Expo vocab and created a private group for CHS students (password L2) with the chat facility disabled. This way I can track students’ progress on the study and games activities: Flashcard Mode - Review your material, shuffle/randomize, or listen with audio. Speller Mode - Type what you hear in this audio-powered study mode. Learn Mode - Track your correct/incorrect answers and retest the one's you've missed. Test Mode - Randomly generate tests based on your flashcard set. Scatter - Race against the clock to drag and match terms/definitions. Space Race - Type in the answer as terms/definitions scroll across the screen. Audio voice over can be added to the flash card sets and it’s excellent - available in 18 languages from English and Spanish to Arabic and Turkish so perfect for language study and vocabulary. Students can also study the flash cards on their phones with Quizlet -powered mobile apps on these platforms: If you enter my username Mme Currie in the Find Flashcards box you should be able to locate the Expo flash card sets.

6. Playbrighter www.playbrighter.com Gaming-style site that we’re invited to trial via a contact of James Bagnall . KS3 students love it. Teacher creates a question set, assigns it to a mission (there are four missions to choose from) and then to a class (class lists can be uploaded in one go via cvs files). Students have to answer the questions correctly in order to complete a mission. This earns them fake dollars in order to buy clothes/accessories to customise their avatar with. It’s extremely repetitive as the same questions are constantly asked over and over. Students say it’s really addictive. I emailed the author, Greg Pallis , to request strict spelling for answers and he was able to provide this option.

7. Hot Potatoes http://hotpot.uvic.ca / A suite of six applications in which you can create multiple choice, short answer, jumbled sentences, crosswords, matching/ordering and gap-fill excercises online. It is freeware and can be downloaded to your work laptop with permission from James Bagnall (Dave added it to my laptop). It’s the same software that Andrew Ballam uses on his Languages Online website.

8. Spellmaster (files available to be copied from the MFL folder on the shared area) . Free software (in both html and shockwave flash format) to create four types of vocab games: Jigword , Matchword , Speedword and Wordweb . You simply enter your Fre / Eng or Ger / Eng vocab into the Words file with no spaces and a comma in between, save it and all four games are simultaneously created. The software is no longer available to download from the internet, but Andrew Ballam kindly emailed me the full set. On our school’s network, Spellmaster games only work in shockwave flash format, and on the MFL laptops students need to select from list when they go to open the games up and choose the internet . I am currently working with Stuart Blucke to get Spellmaster games uploaded to Moodle.
