A Gaming Convert

Ever since I came back from the GLS conference, I have been thinking a lot about how to incorporate games into my classroom. The more I think about it, the more I am leaning towards analogue games for its low tech requirement, open-ended nature, and a collaborative structure.

So I asked a friend of mine to teach me how to play some. Not only did he offer to help, he created a Facebook group for me to join (https://www.facebook.com/groups/glazersgamroom/).

I was not a big fan of gaming before attending the GLS. Since then, I have been learning more and more about the benefits. Who knows? I might actually write my dissertation on gaming and education.
