You can still sign up for our THATCamp (http://bonas16.thatcamp.org/) that will be Tuesday, Oct 25. We begin at 9 a.m. with a presentation by game designer Bryan Mayer on the role of game design in curriculum. Following his talk, we will be the unconference portion where participants propose sessions allowing colleagues to learn collaboratively from each other.
So far, participants have expressed interest in the following topics when they signed up.
Using games in the classroom
Having student design games
(These open the door to team work, group work, iterative design, and using play/fun in the classroom.)
Composition and writing in a digital medium
Data and data visualization
Digital Maps and GIS
Collaboration using software such as OneNote and SharePoint
Social Media in the classroom
This is a relaxed, collaborative environment. We are providing food and snacks. We will also have copies of Mayer’s game and book to give away as door prizes.
