We can learn to play, and play to learn. This session will look at the superpower of games and what they can do for you and your students.
We can learn to play, and play to learn. We’ve all come against that wall when students disconnect from the material we’re trying to teach. They struggle to find relevance in their own education, and we, as their teachers struggle to find inspiring and innovative ways to engage them. To ensure students are equipped with the right tools and skills to think, create, engage, and flourish in the 21st century, we have an opportunity to give them new opportunities to learn playfully — not just with the blocks from our own wonder years, but with powerful new games and simulations that engage and enlighten through experiences. This session will look at the superpower of games and what they can do for you and your students.
