NYCC 2021 | Can We Finally Admit Games Should Be in Classrooms?

Thu, Oct 7, 2021 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Room 406.2

School has often been a source of frustration for many gamers. Too much homework too little creativity and no connections between content and real-life are some of students’ go-to responses. HOWEVER what if we told you there are a bunch of teachers that are pushing the boundaries of the classroom to not only encourage gaming but utilize game-based learning tabletop games and video games as perfect catalysts for student learning? Join Zack Hartzman: Social Studies/ ELA Teacher & Founder of Hey Listen Games Harry Loizides: Math Teacher & Contributor to Six One Indie Maryann Cullinan: Middle School Teacher and Adam Mills: Special Education/Social Studies Teacher & Author for a fun and honest panel where we advocate that games should absolutely be in classrooms.
