Why digital alternatives?

DIGITAL ALTERNATIVES is a collection of practical resources to help you use digital game-based learning in your classroom.

It understands that teachers and learners are all different and shouldn’t be lumped together into the crude categories of digital natives and digital immigrants. It provides alternatives to the coursebook, based on the kinds of games students of all ages like playing outside the classroom.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. I would like to be able to be on the same page my learners are. Being able to incorporate the digital world into the classroom, with engaging activities would be a great resource for me:)

    • Thanks for writing the first post, Claudia! Understanding your learners and the kinds of games they’re into is the first and most important step when it comes to digital game-based learning. I hope you’re able to adapt and use some of the activities on this site as part of your curriculum. Come back and let us know how you get on.
