Embedding Games

More and more sites are making games and video clips embeddable which is good for all of us in education. If the games are only for computer clubs, wet playtimes or homework fun, even non curricular games often develop thinking skills and can help to develop a logial approach to problem solving.

Our Learning Platform has an embedding code capability and there are a whole range of games being made available for teachers to tap into. There are puzzles, strategy and curricular games.

Where sites make the embed code available just copy the code  and look for the greater than and less than markers in the learning platform interest space pages, <>  click on them and paste the code into the offered space.
To spot the embeddable code look for the following sort of structure:

The BBC Bitesize KS2 site has made all of its curricular games embeddable http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/ks2bitesize/ 

http://www.fupa.com/playgames.aspx Play games, embed them in blogs etc!

Play Games at AddictingGames

For embedding video clips check out Teacher Tube http://www.teachertube.com/, or, Your Tube http://www.youtube.co.uk and look for the code:

Also teachers who feel inspired, and have time, can make their own embedable games from flash templates at http://classtools.net/ or http://www.purposegames.com/.
