    Intel Teach Live-November 2013-Gaming-The What...The Why...and the How



      Click here to view the archive recording of the webinar.

      This month’s Intel Teach Live Webinar highlights how educational games can be a powerful learning tool in the classroom. Gaming can address curriculum areas from basic competence levels to 21st Century Skills. There are many educators who are successfully integrating strategies for bringing Internet-based games into their curriculum. Many educational games are free to use, and many can be played without installing or downloading any programs.


      As a follow-up to the "Games:The Why..The What.. and the How Webinar," we are  asking you to help us expand the  knowledge of our participants and share what you are doing in your classrooms.  Given the different purposes for educational games, how do you use games in the classroom? Do you use them to check for understanding,  to enhance practicing skills, to support higher order thinking or to improve 21st Century Skills?


      What games have you found that meet the objectives of a unit that you are teaching?
