Adding Off-the-Shelf Games into Classes

Event: Webinar
Date: Monday, December 12, 2011
Starts: 4:00 pm (GMT-5) Eastern Time (US)
To participate in the webinar, go to on December 12. (No pre-registration required.)

The best educational curriculum seamlessly integrates content, interaction, and assessment into meaningful learning experiences built upon inquiry-based, student-centered, and authentic problem-solving instructional strategies. As it happens, that is exactly what many commercial games do, making their use for education an obvious choice. But this is easier said than done. In our community’s next webinar, the University of North Dakota’s Richard Van Eck will provide a practical overview of how to integrate commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) games into the classroom. Richard will provide an overview of the NTeQ technology integration model, which is compatible with inquiry-based curriculum that COTS games. He will discuss how this model has been used by elementary, middle, and high school teachers to integrate games into the curriculum while meeting the requirements of real-world classrooms. Join Richard for an interactive, one-hour webinar on December 12th for this model and other practical tips for integrating COTS games into the classroom.
