Exploding the Game for Deeper Learning

Want to go beyond using games as one-and-done tools, and enable the replayability and flexibility required to make a lasting impact? Join us to explore best practices for educators and designers to use to ‘explode a game’ into a space for deeper learning, making, and reflecting – complete with projects, lessons and assessments surrounding game play. Don’t worry, no games will be harmed in this session, but they will be taken apart, expanded, and connected to other classroom practices.
