Game on! Research shows that gamification can increase student engagement in the classroom. From simple math games to Minecraft and even large-scale role playing games (RPGs), gaming in education has transformed how students learn new information and skills. Get ready to level up with this week’s Be Connected, where we’ll chat about how you’ve brought gamification into the classroom. You’ll even have a chance to share your favorite educational games with your peers!
Be Connected is a new, weekly webinar series from the LTC focused on facilitating open discussions about pertinent topics within Illinois’ edtech community. Hosted by the LTC’s Chris Wherley and Eric Muckensturm, each session will focus on a specific topic and provide space for participants to ask and answer questions in a relaxed, supportive environment.
Each week will feature a different core topic and a fresh opportunity to connect with your peers. So, be sure to check the LTC events calendar routinely so that you can join in the discussion and Be Connected!
