This VLOG explores how opportunities can be provided for students create their own games in physical education. With creating and making new games being an activity that is engaged with since a young age, numerous benefits can be gained by including student-designed games into the curriculum. In this VLOG the Cooperative Learning structure of Jigsaw is used as an example of how to structure student-designed games. Indeed, games making isn’t simply a case of giving students equipment and asking them to create a game.
