The RNESU Technology Committee will host a VITA-Learn SW professional development event

April 23, 2014 4:00 - 6:00 pm in the OV Library.

Come for an introduction to game based learning (GBL); an approach to learning that uses game mechanics to achieve pre-defined learning outcomes. We'll look at three ways to engage and challenge students through play-to-learn activities. Using MinecraftEdu, Interactive Fiction, and Games for Change students practice planning, managing resources, testing scenarios and adapting strategies in a risk-free setting. These are skills our students will use as seasoned problem solvers and critical thinkers!

Join us for an evening of pizza and PD. Be sure to stick around for the door prize ($150 gift certificate). Please RSVP by going to this link:
