This even was custom made for those of us asking themselves the questions, “What makes a game challenging and fun?  How can you create your own learning adventures?”  Educators joined us for our final session as we navigated a Game Jam to create educational games for all students!

 

We were joined by a stellar team from the award-winning game design company Filament Games! Abby Friesen has worked at Filament since 2011, and has designed more than 20 learning games around a variety of subjects, including kindergarten verbs, middle school biology and civics, college-level contract law, submarine sonar, and more! Matt Haselton is a Game Designer at Filament Games, and specializes in porting learning objectives into game mechanics.
