  2. 2. Gaming: What’s the appeal?<br />Products (assessments)<br />Group: GOOD GAME SPAWN POINT – filmed game review<br />Individual: Reflective Journal <br />
  3. 3. Products<br />What is a reflective journal?<br />Start with an HYPOTHESIS<br />Document how you are investigating your hypothesis: <br />what are your goals?<br />which tasks have you done?<br />3. Which habits of mind are you working on improving?<br />
  4. 4. Timeline<br />10 lessons:<br />Lesson 1: Introduction to unit<br />Lesson 2: Planning with your group<br />Lessons 3-9: Working on products<br />Lesson 10: Presenting your group product to the class<br />
  5. 5. Skills<br />Outcomes: 1, 2, 3, 7, 11<br /><ul><li>Composing texts: reflective journal, script, review
  6. 6. Looking at technology: review of game features, using film techniques, using edmodo to collaborate
  7. 7. Thinking critically: analysing game features, analysing your hypothesis, working in a group
  8. 8. Using, reflecting upon, assessing collaborative and individual learning processes: negotiating and planning with your group, reflective journal, peer feedback</li></li></ul><li>Your say:<br /> Do you want to have the COMPETITION element in this unit?<br />(You will be allocated groups this afternoon via edmodo)<br />
  9. 9. What are some different TYPES of technological games you know about?<br />
  10. 10. Circle Time<br />
  11. 11. Hypothesis: What is it?<br />Scientific?<br />Testing things, investigating things.<br />You do it all the time without realising it!<br />
  12. 12. Hypothesis: Why is gaming appealing?<br />What do YOU think is the explanation?<br />Why? <br />My (fake) hypothesis: People like reading books with characters they can relate to.<br />Why do I think this? The best selling books of all time have characters which are realistic.<br />Use the clip you watched and the discussion we had to formulate your hypothesis!<br />
  13. 13. Tips:<br />Write down a range of options before you choose your hypothesis. Which is the best explanation?<br />Don’t make your hypothesis too broad: e.g. Games are appealing because they are fun. WHY are they fun?<br />There is a video embedded into edmodowith extra tips.<br />
  14. 14. Hypothesis: Why is gaming appealing?<br />Now your task is to come up with some evidence for or against your hypothesis during the unit. You will use your journal to REFLECT on this!<br />At the end of the unit you will come to a CONCLUSION using this evidence.<br />Do “research” by:<br />-playing games yourself, looking carefully at their features<br />-working with your group, what do they think?<br />-watching episodes of Spawn Point for ideas<br />
