Does gaming have a place in education?
ESL news-based lesson plan
This is an ESL lesson on social issues, particularly video games and health. ESL Students will look at the role of video games as a method to transmit information and training.
It focuses on practising key listening, speaking, collaboration and critical thinking skills. If used as a flipped ESL lesson, you will need at least 90 minutes to complete this lesson. However, lessons can run up to 3 hours ( consider two 90-minute lessons or for university teachers to adjust as needed).
While targeting intermediate and upper-intermediate language learners of English, it is highly adaptable as it has been purposely designed to facilitate mixed-level classes. This includes targeting professionals in a tertiary institution such as a university or within a professional environment.
