Games for Learning Workshop

Auckland | 3 November


  • Want a crash course in game design for the classroom?

  • Looking for other game based activities that are working effectively?

  • Getting started: captivate learners with games in the classroom

Find out why game-based learning is so engaging for students, and get top tips for incorporating games into your teaching practice.

  •  Dive into digital game design: discover tools and techniques

Learn how to kick start a Game Development Club, and hear how Pakuranga College made VR games a reality in its classrooms.

  •  Unpack complex issues with games: play in the real world

Experience how role-play and simulation games are effective at introducing complex concepts, and how games can help students engage with big ideas about the future.
