Who Wants to Play? How to Transform Your Class into an Immersive Game

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Converting a class into a game profoundly alters traditional classroom dynamics and engages students in an experience they will not soon forget. More and more educators are unleashing the power of play by grafting game elements into their classes, but where does one begin? Paul Darvasi will unlock the secrets to designing immersive games that blend a modular combination of narrative, video game mechanics, social media, puzzles, interactive tools, reward systems and experiential activities. Teachers can pick and choose the features that make sense for their unique classroom cultures, and recast their practice as a site for creative expression, design and experimentation.
