The Sunday Times Festival of Education at Wellington College (near Reading) seems like a long time ago (June 2011). I was presenting under the technologies strand (which was supported by Microsoft).
My presentation was on Computer Games Based Learning in Education and really serves as a summary for a number of projects I have been involved in over the last few years and some of my current thinking within this area.
Anyway, I’ve just noticed that a video of the presentation has appeared on the Microsoft UK Partners in Learning YouTube Channel and I have embedded it below.
The presentation is in six parts:
- Why Games Based Learning?
- Contextual Hubs (Thematic Learning)
- Learning Games
- What can we learn from games?
- Making and creating games
- Why is it important to teach about games?
