Too often the conversation around games for learning focuses on their appeal and capacity for immersion. We need to take a deeper more evidence based look at the value games may (or may not) provide for learning. With the number of educators using games, we should know more about the extent to which virtual play experiences actually support learning outcomes. Even highly experienced, professional educators stay focused on student engagement. Join us for an interactive workshop where participants will reflect on, discuss and engage with research examples and contribute their own experiences to moving the conversation and assessment practices forward.
