ARG! Let's Create Games for Learning
Role Playing Games (RPG) and Alternative Reality Games (ARG) excite students, enable them to take risks, and promote deep learning of both academic and higher order skills. After a brief intro into the what, how, and why, we will spend 2 hours creating an RPG or ARG that teaches a core academic subject including pre-game activities, the game itself, curriculum, assessment, reflections,and post-game activities. Participants will both be able to use this game and to lead teams to create other games in their content areas and grade levels. These are games that motivate, develop academic and 21st C skills, and assess learning.
