With most of the world under quarantine many schools are closed, so teachers are looking for new and creative ways to do their job from home while keeping their students engaged. This is, in general, nothing new, but it goes without saying that the way to teach your class is how you make a difference. And, we have no choice put to give props to a 7th grade math teacher out of San Diego.
Video sessions are old, but how about lessons in Half-Life: Alyx? Charles Coomber, a math teaher that lives in San Diego, took teaching to another level using Half-Life Alyx as a catalyst for expelling knowledge. To keep his students from 7th grade up do date, he recorded a geometry class inside the newly released Half-Life Alyx, using some glass panels and imagination. After a brief presentation of “his home,” we got to see how quarantine can’t stop us from “normal life.” It is a good example and a great way to get the student’s attention.
The video was posted on Youtube and reached over 300,000 in just two days. Now I don’t say that all of them wanted a math lesson. You get the view of the game, with a perfect look at the surroundings and the smooth moves. There are many other ways to enjoy the game, not just writing on the glass, but it’s all up to your imagination. We’re waiting for more ideas on how to spend time on the new released Half-Life: Alyx
