Using Board Games to teach 21st Century Skills in the ClassroomJeet Raut, M.A. in Instructional Technology and Media
With the introduction of the Common Core requiring that 21st century skills be taught in classrooms, new methods of teaching involving content, 21st century skills, and ways to motivate students become very valuable. Board games provide a possible solution to address all three simultaneously. A quickly playable, engaging board game that ties content with strategy will be educational and motivating. Content pre and post-tests provide a direct method of testing if students are learning the educational material, while teacher evaluations of student’s interactions provide a method of evaluating 21st century skills. This provides a new method of teaching and engaging students with Material.
