Teach Math With the Wii: Engage Your K-7 Students through Gaming Technology
Presented by Matthew Winner, elementary teacher librarian in Elkridge, MD

Level up your math classroom by engaging students with gaming technology. Participants in this webinar will explore how the Nintendo Wii can be used as an instructional tool in the math classroom.

The Nintendo Wii is the most prevalent gaming console in history, selling more than 100 million consoles worldwide since its release in 2006. Many of our students have logged hundreds and thousands of hours in Wii gameplay. So what does this all mean for education? Our kids play video games. They are good at games. And all of that gaming experience can translate to meaningful connections to content in the math classroom with the help of a good teacher. Elapsed time. Geometric shapes. Identifying factors. Determining equivalent fractions. When playing games we create meaningful data. When we use this data to engage our learners, as Meg and I witnessed time and again, something wonderful happens: the students begin to succeed. That work led us to write Teach Math with the Wii (ISTE), a how-to-and-why resource for using the Wii with students in grades K-7 to support mastery of math standards. Now our students think more like mathematicians when playing video games. WIN!
