Did you happen to miss our #scigames session at ScienceOnline? Never fear, check out this great Storify by Jessica Rohde to get a glimpse of all the awesome ideas thrown around.

And while you’re perusing the twitterverse (where you should be following me!), you’ve got to see some of the amazing artwork from our session:

ScienceOnline Wrap Up

I had a really great time at ScienceOnline! I enjoyed meeting everybody and having some fantastic discussions, especially at the #scigames session 🙂

I want to give a shout out to Melanie Stegman’s excellent website, the Science Game Center, where you can play and review some really innovative educational games. It’s worth checking out!

ScienceOnline 2013!

Just a reminder, I’ll be presenting tomorrow morning with Erik Martin on games in education at ScienceOnline 2013! If you’re here in Raleigh, I hope you stop by room 7A tomorrow morning at 10:30 to join in the conversation about the place of videogames in the classroom. Expect to see a live demo of the Puzzle Maker and a few student levels showcased.

ISTE 2013, ScienceOnline 2013, and GAME Webinar

Yours truly will be making a few public appearances in the upcoming months as I, along with two other educators, travel the country (a little bit) expounding on the idea of video games as classroom tools.

First up, this Thursday night, I’m going to be interviewed by the fine people of Gamers Advocating Meaningful Education (G.A.M.E.) as part of their Guild of Educators series. You can watch the livestream of the webinar and ask questions as Steve Isaacs, Lisa Castaneda and I discuss how we have used Portal 2 in our respective classrooms. Steve is a video game design and development teacher in New Jersey and Lisa is a math teacher in Washington state.

Later this month, I’ll be travelling to Raleigh, NC to discuss Portal 2 in the classroom with Erik Martin as part of ScienceOnline 2013. This will be my first time at ScienceOnline. It sounds like a cool conference. I’m expecting a lot of audience participation while we discuss video games as classroom tools.

And now the big one. This summer, Steve, Lisa and I will be presenting at the prestigious ISTE 2013 conference in San Antonio. Our presentation is entitled “Learn with Portals: STEM Education Through Gaming.” We’re really excited to share our approaches to Portal 2 in the classroom with a national audience. I’ll definitely have more information about our presentation and the conference as the conference date approaches.
