Darren Kuropatwa at A Difference has posted a keynote speech, Games as Innovative Teaching, given by Rick Van Eck at the Microsoft Innovative Teachers Conference. I really enjoyed this presentation; it certainly should make educators think about the ways we educate students today and how to engage students in learning. Please click here to view a video of this presentation as well as the slideshow.
You can also hear the audio of Van Eck’s breakout session on Games Based Learning and view his slideshow here. This session is full of very practical ideas for how to incorporate using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) games in teaching a variety of subjects in the K-12 curriculum.
