Teaching is a profession which can blend into your personal time. In my life, video gaming has become something that is scheduled; pencilled in amongst lesson plans and marking. I’ve not given up on gaming though. Not only because I enjoy it, but because gaming has actually been a benefit to my career. This is why I think being a gamer can have a very positive impact on any teacher:
A reference to FIFA is a great way of teaching students about the word ‘morale’. This is a word that especially pops up during History lessons. Ask students to describe what makes morale increase or decrease. The answers are all helpful. What ‘morale’ is: what types of things affect morale; how important morale is to a person or an event.
If nothing else, it’s further proof that young people are smarter than they realise.
