How to Create Games For Your Middle School Classroom

How to Create Games for Your Middle School Classroom


One of our most experienced K12 speakers has agreed to offer an Introductory workshop for middle school teachers that would like to learn more about using games to make their classes more engaging.

This online workshop will explain how to create and then use game based learning modules with middle school students, incorporating NGSS, Common Core and other educational standards.  Examples will be discussed from various subjects including science, computer science and social studies.
 
The leader will engage participants in a game-based learning environment. During the course, attendees will break into teams and create several sample games, which will then be discussed by the group on Zoom.
 
Participants will come away with strategies and methods for building a game based lesson, unit or classroom in any subject.
