Featured Presentation: We Learn Best Through Play

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We learn best through play and that is what we will do in this session. I have gathered some of my friends to help demonstrate some games that you can use with your students. This two hour session will be divided into three parts. Part 1 will describe the games that will be played. In part 2, you will play some games that fit your learning targets. In part 3, we will gather back and share our thoughts. This will not be your typical conference session. If you like to laugh, be loud, and have fun, then this is the place for you. The only thing I ask in return, is that you share what you have learned with your students and your school. Game on!
