Explain Yourself!
Michele Vogt-Schuller

This session will showcase a highly adaptable card game that can be modified to accommodate a wide variety of literary, historical, non-fiction, visual and other texts. Participants will experience both game play and explore different examples of content adaptation.  The card game itself is the outcome of a large class project in which various versions of this card game have been created, tested, and revised, in large part by the high school students that will be attending the conference to facilitate the session.  The card games provided as examples will feature current television shows including Breaking Bad, selected for its high interest level among teens.  In addition to high school student facilitation, the workshop will feature members of the Playful Learning Advisory Board discussing the importance of student game design.

I'm interested in learning theory and constructivist/collaborative education. The game I'm developing encompasses rhetoric, disciplinary literacy, critical thinking and creativity. I'm trying to develop more disruptive elements for the game.
