How Can We Use Video Games in Education?

Video games, like any other medium, can be an incredibly valuable resource for our classrooms. Unfortunately, there is not much out there that explains how to teach with video games. I often incorporate them into my teaching and wanted to make my resources available for other educators. I teach history, so you probably won't find much related to math, or science, but hopefully over time I will have a more well rounded selection. Feel free to subscribe for updates, and let me know if you have recommendations

  • Check out my lessons below. For each lesson you will find a lesson plan, accompanying handouts, and presentation slides.
