Personalized Learning in Practice: Gaming Pedagogy in a Personalized Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This Panel includes researchers, school leaders, digital media experts, and K-12 students to discuss how personalized learning school design and practice supports gaming and game design, both by classroom teachers and students. School leaders in these emerging spaces design for learning and fully embrace gaming as a useful tool and form of classroom pedagogy. Halverson, et. al (2015) explain, “In personalized learning, educators develop environments in which students and teachers together build plans for learners to achieve both interest-based and standards-based goals” (p. 1). Our Panel will discuss a key finding from a study on personalized learning: students are highly social and collaborative when gaming and using diverse digital learning tools in the classroom, which Halverson, et. al (2015) classify as a socio-technical environment (p. 3). Participants in the Panel will experience a personalized classroom game, Denouement, and are encouraged to engage and discuss openly (Johnson, 2016).
