Overview

Games are powerful platforms for entertainment and engagement. But can you use games for learning? Turns out that you can! You just need to put games in the right hands and use the right structure. Games can be used to engage students; reinforce learning outcomes; and create enviable activities that promote achievement and mastery. In this webinar we’ll cover what “games-based learning is” as well as how different learning theories (like self-determination) influence student learning. Games will be reviewed as a way to prime and scaffold students for learning. The “core loop” is the heart of games and this webinar will review how to use the core loop of established games to your advantage. Student progression systems; educator observations; and games-based learning outcomes will be covered as well as how educators can use games for assessment.
