Learning to Game and Gaming to Learn
Date & Time
Saturday, April 18, 2020, 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Learn how video games can engage and motivate students while providing a context for learning, opportunities for inquiry, and frameworks for collaboration. Learn the theory behind why "hard fun" makes for good games - and good learning. Experience it for yourself during a hands-on mobile gaming segment, and leave the session with inspiring ideas for using commercial off the shelf games with your own students... whatever your grade level or subject area. Most importantly, learn how your students (and their games) can help effect positive social change in the world.
