Gaming teacher case studies

Recently, I had the privilege of being interviewed by Jessica Millstone a filmmaker and researcher working with the Joan Ganz Cooney Center.  She, along the good folks at BrainPOP such as Allisyn Levy pioneered a groundbreaking study into teacher attitudes towards gaming.  They’ve just made public their survey results and it’s a fascinating read.  Lots of confirmation that we gaming teachers are really on to something!

Read this announcement to learn more and access the full results of the survey.

As a core part of the study, they are also presenting case studies of various teachers using games in their classrooms.  I am honored to be in the first round of case studies!

They edited together this fantastic video which I’m delighted to share:

There are two more inspiring videos that were released along with mine, that you should also totally go watch.
