Fun and Games in professional development

 Anne Fox

Game-based learning (GBL) is being implemented more and more as a central approach rather than an optional add-on. See for example the new Quest2Learn high school opening in the fall in New York.  GBL also has an illustrious history in professional spheres such as the army, business, aviation and the medical world.  If GBL is effective for learners then why not in our professional development? In this session I invite you to try out three professional development games or simulations to fnd out for yourself whether you can learn anything or anything different in this way. Why not have a go at the games and tell us about your experience in this WIAOC  Ning discussion?


What you can do:

Try out the following games and report back on your experience.

Diffusion of Innovation Simulation (about 90 minutes)

Mentoring Ms Montfort (about 30 minutes)

Social Media game (needs playmates! and also to be adapted to a teaching context)


See you in Elluminate May 24, 18:00 GMT to talk more about this!
