Building on our series of learning game design workshops this past spring, the Learning Games Network has partnered with Generation Cures at Children’s Hospital Boston, MassBioEd , FableVision , and Microsoft to organize the first Game for Good Design Camp in late June 2010.
Fifteen teacher-student teams will participate in a unique project-based learning experience led by doctors and researchers from Children’s Hospital Boston and our designers and developers. This is a terrific opportunity for teachers and students to expand their knowledge of the nature of pediatric research while exploring state of the art theory and practice in game design and its potential for supporting learning. The program has been designed to provide teachers with another way to help make the valuable connections between classroom learning and real world applications. We’ll be videotaping sessions and developing lesson plans and activities that will be posted online this summer so teachers can integrate exercises into their curricula next year.
