Upcoming Events

Webinar: Game-Based Learning with Greg Toppo

December 10th, 2019 at 3:00 pm EST

Why do so many students love video games more than school? It’s not because there’s something magical about video games. It’s because games — both digital and analog — reliably provide seven key things that all of us love. Join us on December 10th to explore these seven things, with an eye toward both learning how games work and what teachers can take from them to make the classroom a more vital, inclusive, equitable and enjoyable place.
