The global games market will generate over $150 billion in 2019 and the outlook for growth is virtually exponential. How would you like to harness this market in your classroom to make your lessons more engaging, streamline classroom management, and help your students learn 21st century employability skills, while still having the same amount of time to teach your content? Join a veteran high school social studies teacher for a webinar on Games and Gamification and learn how you can add the fun and excitement of gaming into your classroom experience regardless of the topic you teach or the age of your students. You will discover a wide range of gamification platforms, games, and game-design tools that you can utilize immediately to catch students' attention and encourage collaboration, cooperation, and social-emotional skills that will serve them both during and after their school careers.
