Angry Birds – Good Learning

Colleague John Burk is one of those educators who tends to see the “teachable moment” and learning opportunities in just about everything on which he casts his glance. Last night, our local NBC affiliate in Atlanta ran this story about how John uses Angry Birds as a means to teach physics.

And, of course, I failed to beat John to the punch blogging about this story. John’s post about the experience can be found here. Many thanks, John, for the ways that you inspire my own teaching and learning – to look for connections and means by which to make learning even more compelling. May we all look for such fun and interesting connections.

  1. Had to pass this along to many Westminster alum and parents who enjoy looking at life with a “learning lens”. Thank you for sharing.
