Nintendo Wii helps students practice outside of class
Last summer, the Department of Foreign Languages applied for a Learning Technology grant from the UW-Eau Claire Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL).The Department proposed to help students hone their foreign language skills outside of the classroom by playing video games to relax between classes. The idea received support from CETL, and last fall a Nintendo Wii and five games were acquired and installed in the language lab.
Starting in April, every Tuesday and Thursday from 4 to 6 will be "Wii open lab" time. Come and play! Check out our list of games at http://www.uwec.edu/Flang/resources/Wii.htm. If you are part of a language club, you can also contact Dr. Miller (email@example.com) to make a reservation for your group at a different time.
If you are an instructor interested in using the Wii in your classes and would like to learn how, you can attend a demo on Thursday April 18 at 12pm in the lab, or contact Anne Hlas (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jessica Miller (millerjs) to schedule a consultation.
