Create A Game At Fyrebug

| 1 Comment

Fyrebug is a new site where you can easily and quickly create a “personalized” game using a variety of templates. As in several of the sites I highlighted in my The Best Websites For Creating Online Learning Games, the games themselves have zero educational value.

However, the learning occurs for English Language Learners when they have to describe the game and then comment on the games created by their peers. The games that are created are embeddable, so they could be placed on a student Jottit page or blog for others to leave comments. That way, students won’t be tempted to play all the other games available on the Fyrebug site.

I think some other sites on my “The Best…” list are better, but this one is worth a look.

I’m placing the link on my website under Student Video Games.

  1. Cool site! Thanks for the recommendation.

    I registered at Fyrebug.com this morning, and have since made my first three flash games, which is really saying something (I often can’t even access my printer!)

    The games were fun to make, and fun(ner!) to play. I’ll be bookmarking and revisiting often!
