Video Games as Teaching Tools

Can Video Games Teach Things that Otherwise Can't Be Taught? Video games teach us complex ideas and abstract concepts that would be time-consuming to learn through words alone.  Motivated individuals who have an affinity for the topic may voluntarily make an effort to comprehend a certain abstract concept.  However, video games can involve a large fraction of people with many different concepts.

Join our guest presenter, Melanie Stegman, Ph.D. Professor of Game Design and founder of Molecular Jig Games. She will share data demonstrating learning, examples of excellent science games, and a discussion of how to take advantage of video games in education best.
