Chocolate Broccoli Balls: Hiding Learning within Immersive Simulations

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

Typical education games are called “chocolate-covered broccoli”: the eat-your-veggies learning is poorly disguised within the artificial structure of yummy games. Immersive simulations inspire students to eat their broccoli so they can solve motivating, realistic problems in lifelike situations. During this session, you will experience computer-based, content-rich experiences with award-winning simulations such as “Win the Whitehouse,” “The Redistricting Game,” GoogleLitTrips, building and launching rockets with NASA, and identifying and killing viruses with your trusty Molecular Rover. Bring your laptop and download information before the session at goo.gl/wVFeVd.
