Few days in school can top game days for building student excitement and engaging them in learning. This session will present perspectives and hands-on applications that equip participants to integrate students’ natural love for gaming and friendly competition to any classroom. Jim Kestner, nationally recognized for his unique perspectives and methods for making a real difference with students, brings humor, anecdotes, and fun to a hands-on workshop that equips educators to use existing plans and resources in new ways. Participants will discover:

  • A step by step guide to gamifying existing curricula
  • Electronic tools and resources that work in person and for remote learners
  • Strategies for using gamification to differentiating instruction
  • Collaborative strategies that bring new perspectives and resources to the classroom
  • Ongoing support for implementing workshop strategies after the workshop has ended

This event does include a catered lunch.
