Elective on educational gaming
Posted May 18, 2009on:
A colleague (Steve Zuiker) and I are planning on offering an ed-gaming elective in the 2010 Jan semester.
I’d like to build upon what I start each semester on ed-gaming in the core ICT course for teacher trainees. I agree with Steve that this elective course is an not just an opportunity for us to start something unique in teacher education, but also to accelerate the changes in thinking that are sorely needed in education.
I’d like to see gaming and other powerful and relevant ideas emerge in all learning settings. Such practices should not be hiding behind books (both figuratively and literally).
I don’t get many eyes on this blog in between semesters, but I welcome any ideas for getting teachers to integrate gaming in mainstream education.
