Addressing Three Dimensional Science Standards with Games

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How can video games be used to support strong three dimensional learning in the new Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) framework?  In this workshop, we will dive into how games can be used to support the innovations of the NGSS, such as progressions of the three dimensions across K-12, being phenomena-driven, and teaching with storylines. We will use Tyto Online for our hands-on application, which has been funded with NSF and Dept. of Education grants. This will include playing the game from a student’s experience and analyzing how it successfully supported the NGSS and where it would need support.  We’ll see examples of classroom implementation and student work with the game, and make a plan for how you could use games to support these practices in your own classroom.
