The Third Annual Robert C. Heterick, Jr., Lecture

Educators struggle to involve students in their schoolwork. The key is engagement—providing learning that motivates students. Student's do not need better content, but more engaging approaches and 21st century skills. The place to start is where they're most involved—games. This talk illustrates how games engage students and how educators can employ and benefit from games and the powerful educational principles behind them.
