PAX East 2014 – Educational Video Gaming for the Millennial Generation

Let’s talk seriously about video games in the classroom beyond gamification. Hospital teacher Erin Ryan will focus on defeating common stereotypes against educational gaming in the pursuit of quality supplemental games that engage students on a new level of learning.

What’s stopping us? The millennials are ready and waiting.  Let’s talk.

Panelists: Andrew Ryan [Academic Advising Systems Lead, Boston University], Erin Ryan [Social Studies Teacher, Website], Michael Astolfi [Vice President of Product, Website]
