Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Educators are always looking for ways to deepen student learning and develop P21 skills. Strategy gaming can facilitate all of those things.

Analog strategy gaming builds collaboration and problem solving skills, and games can provide a structure within which students can make connections to content, and build content knowledge.

The game design process utilizes the elements of the engineering design process and requires students to think abstractly in order to convey content knowledge through the theme and mechanics of their game. The process integrates writing, modeling, and content knowledge.

Participants will walk away with a variety of strategies for implementing game design with their students.
