Today I had the pleasure of speaking at an event called “Conversations with Innovators.” I am extremely excited to be teamed up with Janet Twyman. She is the director of innovation and technology at the Center on Innovations in Learning.
Here is a little about the center.
The Center on Innovations in Learning is one of seven national content centers funded by the United States Department of Education. The Center on Innovations in Learning’s mission is to (a) increase the capacity of state education agencies (SEAs) to stimulate, select, implement, and scale up learning innovations in local education agencies (LEAs) and schools to improve learning outcomes for all students; and (b) increase the capacity of regional comprehensive centers (RCCs) to provide technical assistance to SEAs relative to the Center’s scope of responsibility
We are going to be talking about in an “unconference” type of setting about Personalizing instruction. My focus will be on how games allow for personalized instruction in a variety of format. The session will focus on the future and the role of games and gamification. The session will be facilitated by Mark Williams. I have to say I am very much looking forward to the session and to discussing the benefits of game-based learning.
I have also written a chapter for a book the center is creating. In that chapter I describe how ROV commander from 2KLearning allows for a personalized learning experience and how video games in the classroom can lead to specific learning outcomes.
Looking forward to the publication of the chapter.
