Gamers and Non-Gamers Unite:  Experience the Education Adventure of Award-Winning PBS Wisconsin Video Games

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Teachers are constantly bombarded with resources and digital content for the classroom, making it tough to discern what is high-quality and authentically incorporates literacy development. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn about two standards-aligned, locally relevant historical inquiry games from PBS Wisconsin: The Legend of the Lost Emerald and Jo Wilder and the Capitol Case. These games feature all the fun and adventure of classic video games combined with a text-dependent format that will get students reading and thinking to move the action along. Not only will participants leave this workshop with FREE multimedia resources to build meaningful literacy experiences, historical inquiry and critical thinking skills, they should bring their personal devices and be ready to play!  The two video games are designed for Grades 3-6 but all can find a way to use it within the school setting.
