The State of Games in the American Classroom

Tuesday, April 17 7:30pm — 9pm
7 World Trade Center
250 Greenwich Street, 40th floor
New York, NY 10007-2157

Discussion of the current state and future of how games shape learning environments, bring people together, and can potentially change the classroom experience.

Check out the Greater Good Events Calendar.

Over 90% of students play games, and teachers are split in regards to the role they play in education. The brave new world of gamin need not terrify parents and educators, though: an increasing body of scientific research demonstrates social, neurological, and learning benefits to people who play games. Moreover, game designers have used that knowledge to target specific learning objectives. Join the New York Academy of Sciences to discuss the future of gaming and how it can be applied to the classroom and to growing minds.
