About the discussion

As many students (and teachers) know, games are not only fun, but also great at cultivating critical thinking and problem solving skills. And when it comes to using games to enhance active learning and increase student engagement, the possibilities are endless.

This session will explore and expand on approaches to using a variety of game formats in the classroom. Participants will come to understand the value of game-based learning, as well as methods to integrate games into lesson design for different subject areas, grade levels, and learning environments (in-person, hybrid, and online).

Whether you’re a pro at using games in the classroom or a beginner looking to engage students in new ways, join
us!
