Simple Designs for Complex Goals
Brendon Trombley, Shula Ehrlich

In working with teachers and students at New York City public school Quest to Learn, we have identified some best practices for the design and execution of games and game-based learning in the classroom. One of our most impactful discoveries is the use of simple and flexible structures that are adaptable across subject matters and grade levels. These structures empower teachers and students alike, allowing them to create content and modify the design to fit their needs. Join us as we share examples and invite participants to play and modify one of our most successful game-like structures. By workshop's end you'll be equipped with an adaptable framework you can quickly apply to your own work.
