Can you imagine a first grade classroom where every student is engaged and personalizing their learning while still working towards a common goal? Or a fifth grader showcasing his/her research project through a video game? How about a collaboration between an art teacher and a classroom teacher to enhance a typical classroom lesson to incorporate video game design?

In this session, we will explore the world of video game design through a child’s eyes using Bloxels. Bloxels is a user friendly iOS, Android, and Chromebook platform for building video games with students as young as first grade. Learn how two elementary technology coaches integrated this tool into classrooms across the school and inspired teachers and students to personalize learning. We will share resources, ideas, and examples of how this awesome tool works! Come be inspired to charge towards the digital wave of the future!
