Tech at Play in the L2 Classroom: Creating Engaging Games for Learning

Date: July 17-19, 2017

Instructor: Trish Nolde 

Brief Description of Workshop: Why can’t learning be more like a game? Gamification can bring fun, motivation, and creativity to the language classroom when developed and implemented within a well-designed curriculum. Games for learning can be technology-mediated, such as online games, or can be technology generated and adapted for use in the physical classroom. In this workshop, we’ll explore the most basic fundamentals of game design for learning, software tools for creating games and resources, and how to adapt online learning environments for language games. Regardless of whether you are in a 1-to-1 technology classroom, have mobile devices, or just have an instructor computer, you’ll be able to create engaging student-centered activities for your classes. You don’t have to be a computer programmer to program games into your classroom! This workshop is open to instructors of all languages and all levels.
