Students enjoy learning with games. Games are motivating for language learners. They add a context to vocabulary and conversation. Games are also ways to drill and memorize. Students learn even more when they take what they have learned and create a game for theirs. The web tools and apps below are free to design games. For resources related to teaching language learners with games, check out our webinar recording, Level Up! Students Creating Digital Games.
To learn more about integrating technology to support English language learners, attend our free Friday webinars.

Adolescents and teens can create games with these web tools:
- Scratch MIT
