My esteemed (and younger) colleagues Nicole and Tina told me that these two videos have kind of, sort of, a link to gamification if you know anything about the video game Minecraft. Well, sadly, my education was lacking. First I had to Google about Minecraft to figure out what that was. Then I had to watch Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night” and Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” music videos (quite the eye opener, Miley, I think I need to get out more!) before I could even post this Fried Friday.
So here are two fun parodies — choose your musical flavor, Katy or Miley and enjoy some fun with the Minecraft game.
Also, yesterday, on the 10 Day Faculty Challenge, Charla posted a pretty interesting video on the Top 10 Most Frustrating Video Game Levels. If you like games, you might relate to this. I found it interesting because, even as a teacher, I think we often fail our students by overwhelming them with too much information, surrounding them with a forest of papers, articles, resources etc. I think a lot of the frustration seen in these games might directly correlate or link to classroom frustration too. Or, maybe I’m just a little Fried this Friday! Have a great weekend.
