Digital Diner @ The TIES Playground: Playful Learning

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

Play in learning environments is essential, and gives students opportunities to engage in creative inquiry and exploration. While playful learning certainly doesn’t require technology, it seems that every day there is a new gadget, game, and gizmo to foster and inspire student learning. Chat with some experienced educators and explore some of these tools that allow students to learn through play, like Osmo, Makey-Makey, Spheros, Ozobots, and more in this portion of the playground.
