Limited Capacity seats available

Game Developers for Math Snacks Early Algebra, a National Science Foundation grant, have developed 2 new video games and 1 interactive tool around foundational skills which students needed to succeed in Algebra. Technology has played an important role in education, providing both teachers and students with more options and flexibility in their teaching and learning practices. Teachers can use technology resources to provide opportunities for learning and create the "conditions that optimize learning" (Jonassen, Howland, Moore & Marra, 2003). This session will be set up for participants to play with the new games, as we believe that gameplay allows the teacher to become the facilitator of learning, incorporating various strategies to guide learners.
