Teachers only: Some serious gameplay


This panel will introduce you to the “super teachers” who will talk about how they are using games to face the everyday challenges of teaching. How are some using ready-made games like SimCityEDU and Argubot Academy, and how have others become designers themselves and created and modded their own games. They will talk about how their own private use of games lead them to bring games into their classrooms, best practices, and of course challenges. No talking heads allowed.
