  1. Hi,I know that my lesson is itnsreeting when nobody ask me to go to the bathroom!!!!!!!!It’s not alwals so easy to get my students’ attention and I need a lot of time to prepare amazing lessons, but when nobody asks me to go to the bathroom, I’m very happy and my students too.One fear of students is making a mistake in front of others but only when in the class there isn’t regard, so we can teach first of all this and then the class is ready to make mistakes to learn.The popularity of video games is not the enemy of education, but rather a model for best teaching strategies. Games insert players at their achievable challenge level and reward player effort and practice with acknowledgement of incremental goal progress, not just final product. The fuel for this process is the pleasure experience related to the release of dopamine.I use sometimes video games with the whiteboard and it’s good but noisy.BYE
