Crash Course on Gaming and Learning - Mark Chen
STEMx teachers who are familiar with the landscape of gaming have an advantage in thinking about using games or game-inspired activities and mechanics in their classrooms. This mini-course introduces educators to the world of gaming culture through playing games critically and reflectively, as well as participating in online gaming communities and reading game studies, journalism blogs, and texts. Gaming and being a gamer is much more than playing games; it involves engaging with a rich, dynamic cultural world. Learning from games is as much about understanding how to participate in this social world as it is about learning gaming content. Mini-course participants will live stream, record, and share their gaming sessions, making “Let’s Play” videos that focus on how gaming experiences relate to and affect classroom practice and the design of STEMx learning environments. The Let’s Play videos will be uploaded to YouTube, adding to a repository of teacher-oriented gaming videos. Blogging and participating in online forums around current gaming topics and issues will also be required.
