Video Games as Learning Tools for Your Media Curriculum

Brock R. Dubbels, University of Minnesota


In this session, participants will learn experientially about how to enhance a media curriculum with video games to raise reading comprehension levels, technical writing, problem solving, and critical analysis of games as medium. The participants will be presented with curriculum, connections to standards, and methods for collecting their own data to influence and support policy decisions.
