Reflecting on how Wordle works from a pedagogical POV
I'm addicted. A word game lover, this one is challenging, but always doable. I change my first word every time, just for the fun of it. The only day I missed getting it was when I started with XEBEC, just cause it's a cool word - and wasted that line...
I’ve used “Wordle” for years, as a tool. This new use of the word was confusing. Any insight on how the two terms are compatible or conflicting?
It's been keeping me entertained this week. I inadvertently played in "Hard Mode" before I realized that it was only required if you wanted to play in "Hard Mode". 🤣 So far, I'm sticking to the good 'ol Wheel of Fortune strategy of mining my first word from RSTLNE.
But, to comment on your core thesis, I agree. My own theory of change is that struggle is essential to growth, and Wordle certainly presents one, especially if you're trying to minimize your guesses.
