Game Jams in the Classroom: Teaching Empathy with Game Design
Would you like way to teach your students design thinking, systems thinking, and empathy all at one time? Perhaps you don't typically think of these as going hand-in-hand, but this webinar will explore how game design can be used to cultivate all of these skills. Join Dr. Matthew Farber, author of "Gamify Your Classroom: A Field-Guide to Game-Based Learning," as he shares how his students remixed a social deduction game to align with course content. Matt will also show how students created interactive historical fiction stories using Twine. And while the examples Matt provides are history-related, this game-making approach can be applied to any content area.
