Now in its third year, the K12 Online Conference is underway. But don’t worry — you haven’t missed anything, it’s all online!
I cover topics including: Why games?; What’s wrong with edutainment?; Serious Games; Casual puzzle and logic games in the classroom; Virtual Worlds, Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) games; Overcoming Objections to using games in the classroom; and students designing and programming their own games. Yes, all in 20 min…
Beyond games, if you are interested in learning more about technology in education in general, and seeing presentations from educators all around the world, then you will find some great stuff on the K12 Online 2008 conference site. Since the conference is online and all the sessions are pre-recorded, they can be downloaded or viewed online anywhere, anytime. For first-timers, be sure to read the “how to” page here.
Check the conference blog for both recorded sessions and live chats with keynotes and presenters.
