February 20, 2009: On Fridays, my students in HISP 205 have decided that we should play games…games that stimulate thinking and conversation in Spanish.
They had a couple of suggestions like Taboo.
I was thinking more diabolical thoughts… thanks to the games like those played at UMW Faculty Academy: aka Deck Wars(scroll to the middle of this page to watch the mayhem)
My thanks and praise to the folks at the nmc (hmmmm…. cog dog? Did you make this happen?) for creating this wonderful little digital story telling generation tool called Five Card Flickr…it allows you to pull together fotos from a common, shared pool of pix, and then encourages you to write a story.
Or, as we did in class, they tell a story outloud and I type it in to the box.
Now it was just happenstance and just blind luck that the first pic we pulled up happened to really truly be of me (oh my) hence the Teacher as Protagonist storyline
In any event… enjoy! And please feel free to share any other conversation generating tools!
