When do games inspire learning? GBL Webinar

May 13, 2015

On May 18th, I am moderating a webinar on game-based learning in the classroom. It is with leading expert Greg Toppo, USA Today’s K-12 education writer (and a former teacher). This GBL Webinar will focus on a popular topic schools are exploring this year.

Greg has been researching game-based learning in schools. He recently wrote The Game Believes in You: How Digital Play Can Make Our Kids Smarter after finding himself surprised by the effectiveness of digital play in engaging students and fostering learning.

  • Successful models for gamifying the learning experience
  • Common concerns about digital play in classrooms
  • Tools and strategies that work, based on his observation

Greg will be joined by Monique Choyce from LAUSD. She will share observations from her classroom on the power of gamification.

There will also be ample time for Q&A with Greg and Monique!
