Textivate your text

Textivate is a website that allows teachers or students to make interactive games from chunks of text. Great for MFL controlled assessment practise where they can use examples of paragraphs to practise key phrases.

Students can cut and paste paragraphs up to 500 words and use from home to test themselves or in a computer lesson. There are a number of options such as:

  • Reconstructing the paragraph where students have to remember the correct order.
  • There is an option to take out all the spaces so students have to identify where the words start and end.
  • Gap fill
  • Space invaders – always a winner.

From what I can see there doesn’t seem to be a way to download a game in a printable format – this is where you have to buy the Taskmagic software. So, print screen it is to make a starter for your lesson

Also if you have a website/VLE then the games can be embedded into that or you could give students a link to a specific game. See some examples below:textivate
