Games are a great way to engage young students. How do you know which educational tools are worth the time? Stop by this poster session to learn about ten of our favorite tools to use in the elementary grades. We will share a description of the tool, why we think it is valuable in the classroom, offer classroom implementation ideas, plus discuss how to use the Triple E Framework to determine the best way to integrate the games into the lesson. The Triple E Framework (Engage, Enhance, and Extend) tells us that the learning goals must come first, and then the technology. How do we make sure the games are keeping the content/learning goals first? Stick around and we will even demonstrate several of the tools!
- Participants will learn about ten gaming tools that are appropriate for elementary classrooms.
- Participants will gain knowledge about the Triple E Framework and how each tool fits with the framework.
- Participants will discover classroom integration ideas for each of the tools that are shared.
