Many games are purpose-built to teach one skill or concept. Unfortunately, this means that their use in the classroom is limited. For games to be truly flexible and robust teaching tools, educators need the skills to be able to find new resources quickly and extract learning from them easily.
This workshop focuses on finding fun, free, accessible online games & activities and developing learning experiences from them. Participants will play a model game, discuss a framework for thinking about learning in this context, develop & share a mini-lesson, and walk away inspired!
Organizer's note: spots are limited for this session. Please visit the Help Desk at the Symposium to learn more about reserving a seat.
