WW HistoryQuest Institute 2016
Professional development for teachers isn’t all fun and games, unless you’re a WW HistoryQuest Fellow. This summer, more than 50 New Jersey social studies teachers came together in Princeton, N.J., for a week long course in game-based learning practices. Led by the Institute of Play, the WW HistoryQuest Institute taught Fellows the elements of the game design process and gave them opportunities to think about how to bring game-like learning back to their classrooms. Fellows developed, designed, and tested their own games, coming up with activities covering everything from manifest destiny to the three branches of government. Hear a little about the program in the video above.
