The next in the EdTechX Series of online courses on edX launches week 0 tomorrow. Register today.  

HAVE A FRIEND OR COLLEAGUE that you think might enjoy the course? 

We would love to see participants invite their colleagues or friends to take the course with them. This allows participants to have both a face-to-face and virtual learning community  that we hope will allow participants to apply their learning to their local context.

This Unhangout provides a unique opportunity for participants in 11.127x: Design and Development of Games for Learning to get together in real-time, discuss experiences in the course, and collectively reflect on their projects. Participants will have the opportunity to share work with classmates and interact in a small group setting. To get the most out of this session, please select an aspect of your project you want feedback on. Be prepared to share your work via the embedded screen sharing tool (more instructions will be provided during the event) or have links to specific documents ready.

Exploring games that promote learning through authentic and engaging play
Introduction

The Education Arcade is based at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and explores games that promote learning through authentic and engaging play. TEA’s research and development projects focus both on the learning that naturally occurs in popular commercial games, and on the design of games that more vigorously address the educational needs of players. Our mission is to demonstrate the social, cultural, and educational potentials of videogames by initiating new game development projects, coordinating interdisciplinary research efforts, and informing public conversations about the broader and sometimes unexpected uses of this emerging art form in education.

Education Arcade projects have touched on mathematics, science, history, literacy, and language learning, and have been tailored to a wide range of ages. They have been designed for personal computers, handheld devices and on-line delivery.
