This week, the ‘Teaching and Language Learning through GamificationTESOL EVO session comes to an end. It’s been an enjoyable 5 weeks, with some great live sessions from special guest speakers and lots of sharing of ideas and enthusiasm in the Moodle forums. The TLLG Moodle won’t be around for long, but the highlights of the course will be archived on a wiki,http://tllg.wikispaces.com , which we also hope will be a place that people can share links to lesson plans for online games they have used.

During the EVO session, there also seems to have been evidence of an increased interest in games for language learning and teaching. Apart from the fact that 304 people signed up to be members of the TLLG Moodle, a figure much higher than we thought we’d have, we’ve also spotted the following:

So, lots to read and think about there – and it’s only February. Looking forward to seeing what the rest of the year brings in this widening field.
