Overview

Most kids love online games - so why not use them to engage your students, promote 21st century learning, and help them develop creative problem-solving skills? Join Kim Munoz as she explores how to use Gamestar Mechanic, a game and online community that teaches users how to design their own games. She will show how this site, along with game design, can help strengthen creative problem-solving abilities, promote writing and storytelling skills, and provide motivation for STEM learning. You will learn how to get students signed up, the types of games they play, and how they can publish their own games. You will also discover where to find lesson ideas and examples of how other teachers have used this engaging tool.

Great overview, but too much for a half hour. There needs to be follow up or longer sessions for this.
