Unplug, Reboot, and Play – Games for Boosting Learning
Description of workshop:
The goal of our workshop is to demonstrate how you can harness the power of gaming and design to “unplug” and “reboot” your students to be ready for learning. Broken into 3 chunks, participants will receive information about the science behind gaming, activity and the brain; learn the mechanics behind addictive apps in physical games designed by the presenters; and, apply these principles in the creation of your own game.
