Hey guys! Hope you are all relaxing during the Easter break! I have wanted to play Minecraft for many years and never found the time to. Recently, I have joined a team of teachers who use Minecraft in their lessons to teach English! I have learnt a lot from them and will continue to learn more.
I will be vlogging what I do so I have a record of what I am learning and here’s my first quick vlog:
Who else plays Minecraft? If you play Minecraft please comment on this blog post below!
This game needs 8 players. Each player must answer the question and say why he/she likes or doesn’t like the sport. Every box has 9 questions about a sport the winner is the player that finishes first. We need a dice for this game. It is played with 8 pawns!!!
Last night I was playing UNO with my bigger brother. He introduced to me a new set of rules for the best board game ever made UNO. The changes were very simple, you had to keep drawing until you can play. Playing the number 0 or 7 would make us swap cards. There was a time on the second round, where I drawed most of the deck. My brother was laughing soo hard that I couldn’t control myself either.
Every time I played a card, it was a close call. But my brother was so lucky. In the end he sent me to the shadow realm. He is after all the king of duels.
My favourite electronic game is the Dancing road! In this game you will do match the colour ball with another ball witch has the same colour as it! When you play this game a song is heard! I like this game because I like the songs it has! I love this game!
Do you know how to play Uno? The answer is yes. But, do you know how to play Uno on the Internet? My sister told me an app named, Uno. As soon as, I installed it, I liked it. Uno (on the Internet) is playing only four players. You can play alone or with teammates. If you win, you get money from losers. Also, Uno app has contests. You can change the colour of the cards, too. My favourite track is “wild weekend” because it hides many surprises. I liked Uno on the Internet and I will never delete it from my phone.
One day, our dad bought us a console. My sister and I loved it. We do gymnastics, we play Forza horizon, we watch movies on Netflix or on youtube. My console is xbox360. It has a camera to see us when we do gymnastics. Also, it has a remote control. The Xbox 360 has characters that you can dress up or change the colour of their eyes and hair. Μy sister and I have done for all my family. I am glad that we have a console to play or to watch movies and I don’t want to buy a new console.
Gamification is undeniable one of the most exciting ways to learn. Especially, this period with quarantine, we used the way of gamification to learn or revise things to the children. But a question that most parents and some teachers make; is gamification meaningful?
Firstly, gamification is a way to learn easer everything needs to learn. Similarly, is the easer and most exciting way to do our revises or our homework. Likewise, in this way, people of all ages can learn new languages. Also, this way help our self-improvement. What I mean with that? Gamification helps us achieving success but hard work and study are needed.
Something essential that all people but especially children need to understand is that they play games to improve their skills not to become antisocial. Gamification turns a task, whether it’s learning into a rewarding experience and with the competitive element that makes the game exciting but there are children that they can not understand that. What we can do to reduce this? We need to explain to those people that the mean of the gamification is not always trying to win the other but to try being better or learn from the game new things or to remember things we have forgot as like revisions with a most exciting way.
In conclusion, gamification helps us in a lot of parts but we need to know what is the time to stop, take a break and start again because as technology have radical results in our life and gamification have bad results to us if we do not know how to use it right.
My favourite video game is Lego races 1. I play it at the weekends with the controller of the play station 2 and 3. Lego races is an action/adventure game and the game is about races and you pick a car and have the race with all the cars of the game. If you win you will advance a level. You can throw a bump and go faster when you get a lego green or red. You can do ‘cruifault’ race-time race and built race. I like it because lego races is my favourite game.
How are you? I hope you’re well! In this e-mail, I want to tell you about my experience. You’ll ask: what experience? Wait, wait! Don’t be impatient! I’ll tell you: Today, in the morning I read a notification on social media. I was writing about a live quiz which as in the afternoon. I was very surprised. I said “I’ll have fun”, so I decided to take part in this quiz. The quiz was at 7:00 o’clock in the afternoon. At half-past six I realized that I didn’t know the link to do it. I was very nervous but still, my forces hadn’t run out so I kept on trying to find out from where could I do this quiz. Finally, I saw a link and I clicked on it. It was the quiz. I was very happy. I think this quiz had 10 rounds. In this quiz, you don’t have only to think but you must be quick too. One of its advantages is that it is very fun. I won’t tell you anything else. Do it and find out other from its advantages.
