Join our conversation around +Matthew Farber's recently released presentation on +k12online the K12 Online Conference. There are a multitude of ways of participating asynchronously in this conference, and we encourage you to listen on your bike, on a run, or with colleagues.

We are lucky enough to get three of this year's Conference Organizers to come and demonstrate what it looks like when we watch a presentation together with friends. Join +Karen Fasimpaur +Susan van Gelder and +Peggy George on Teachers Teaching Teachers http://edtechtalk.com/ttt on Wednesday, October 21 at 9PM Eastern/6PM Pacific.

We'll be watching and talking about, GAME JAMS: STUDENTS AS DESIGNERS by +Matthew Farber:

Game jams have been growing in popularity. In a game jam, teams are challenged to design a game in a short period of time. In essence, game jams are a game about making a game. Students apply systems thinking, user empathy, collaboration, storyboarding, and iterative design, while also learning how to tackle broad, open-ended problems. Matthew Farber, author of Gamify Your Classroom: A Field Guide to Game-Based Learning, will discuss his use of game jams in his middle school social studies classes, as well as digital game jams in the after school club he advises. He will share resources from the Moveable Game Jams he attended in the New York area this year, including Quest to Learn, in New York City, as well as the A. Harry Moore School Game Jam Day, in Jersey City, NY, which he facilitated.

I LOVE the book The Dot and I LOVE International Dot Day.  Because I love them so much I have an Augmented Lesson that pairs some AugThat's triggers, my triggers, and a few of Quiver's together to make for a fun unit.  I've even included some tech integration tools & CCSS. International Dot Day is Sept. 15th - ish and is a lot of fun.    ~Enjoy!
