We know students don't learn well in a passive, traditional classroom environment. Games, however, provide an environment that promotes imagination, critical thinking and collaboration. Games have the ability to immerse learners in a simulated environment that allows them to fail fast and learn faster.So, how might we use co-operative experiences and game-based learning to create opportunities for learning, interaction and provide instant feedback in our classrooms? Come and learn about the implementation of game-based learning in high tech environments (with Minecraft and Microbits) as well as environments with limited resources (unplugged activities) and leave with practical tips and ideas on the usage of game based learning in the classroom.
