    Transform your Classroom with Alternate Reality Games

    Zoom webinar with John Fallon 

    Alternate reality games (ARGs) are a flexible, modular, and scalable approach to game creation that can be brought into nearly every classroom, regardless of content area. Using the world around your students - both physical and digital - you can turn the mundane into exciting. The unique draw of ARGs is that since they use real world systems like email, websites, and the physical space available to you, it does not require expert design skills to create and it only takes curiosity to play. 

    The webinar will go over the basics of why game based learning is a best practice for 21st century education, the core philosophy of ARGs, and an in-depth example of how an ARG was designed and executed to teach high school students about online privacy, cybersecurity, digital citizenship, and research skills. It will then supply some first steps and resources that should help get interested teachers started on making their own ARG experiences.

    • Webinar Via Zoom

    The children in our schools need to build relationships with the teachers who are entrusted with their care.  One way to build these relationships is to teach how to be mindful, or present in the here and now, which has been helpful in alleviating anxiety and making children happier.  In the process of teaching mindfulness, we are building a caring relationship with all children and modeling/teaching them to be more present in a world that is constantly demanding their attention. This is a lifelong skill that children can apply in their everyday lives while helping them to overcome stressors either at home or in school and become more resilient.

    “Mindfulness can be a useful tool for decreasing anxiety and promoting happiness. Mindfulness — a simple technique that emphasizes paying attention to the present moment in an accepting, nonjudgmental manner.” (https://www.nytimes.com/guides/well/mindfulness-for-children)

    Join Jeannette Fodness as we discuss the need for mindfulness practices in our schools to help people of all ages to be more aware of their bodies, their emotions, their thoughts, and their interactions.
