Rik Eberhardt from the MIT Game Lab and Carole Urbano from the Education Arcade will facilitate a workshop for current and past SEPT teachers to collaborate and co-create classroom materials that draw from the past week (and past years!) of SEPT.
We will start the design challenge with a primer on using game design as a method of summative assessment, by designing our own game about one of the concepts we’ve learned this past week. Afterwards, participants will be encouraged to work on their own or in self-formed teams to consider the use of tools and concepts from the past week in their curriculum and lesson plans.
Participants will present their creations on Saturday morning.
Rik and Carole will facilitate a discussion about the concepts and tools that we have learned about this past week, to discover elements that our participants could bring into the evening’s design challenge.
