The course will allow you to step into the role of your students, reflecting from both the teacher and the learner perspective with a focus on the design and use of games for learning within flexible content area contexts (eg., STEM, social studies, ELA). The course will allow you to experience firsthand practices that are encouraged by Common Core and state standards, as well as 21st Century skills. In this course, you will create "learning games" focused on self-selected skills, practices, and concepts, along with supporting tasks and reflective spaces. Thus, you will produce not just discrete games, but a set of experiences generated by those games, enabling practical, effective classroom integration. Throughout this process you will ask deep questions about domain content and practice; observe and analyze student reactions and level of engagement; and reflect on your own teaching practice.

Online meeting times Mon, Wed, and Thurs from 3:30-6:00pm via Adobe Connect. Live participation is highly recommended, but not mandatory.
