Mott Community College – Flint, MI
Award Amount: $75 (registration fee)
Barry J. Fishman, from the University of Michigan, will provide the keynote address entitled "School is a Game... But is it a good game?" In his talk, he will describe an approach called gameful learning - based on observations of one of the most durable and natural environments for learning - learning from play. This is not about learning by playing games. Rather, this talk posits that learning in school is already a kind of game, but a poorly designed one. The goal is to design a better game, and a better system. For more information, http://www.etom.org/content.cfm?m=11&id=11&startRow=1&mm=0
