Fact or Fake: Using Games to Teach Ethics

Today’s fractious media environment poses challenges for educators. Focusing on game-based learning, this workshop provides evidence-based tools to use with Quandary, an award-winning free nonprofit online game that helps students discern fact from opinion, advance critical thinking skills, and navigate ethical situations. Presented by experts in game design, research and education, this experiential workshop will empower educators to equip students for an increasingly complex world.
