We know that kids learn from games, and learn from play. The trick in the classroom lies in making that rich, focused play and understanding what students are getting from it. As the teacher, you set that context, and you in the best position to assess what students are learning.

I will present a couple of frameworks for ways to consider not just games, but play in your classroom. We’ll then play several games in BrainPOP’s GameUp together, examining different modes of play and different ways to assess the activity. This will be a very interactive session - while we have designed assessment tools and techniques for our games, we’re always learning about new ways to use them and will have time to share techniques between attendees.
