GETinsight Live Discussion This Wednesday: Game-based Learning Practical Strategies for Leaders

This Wednesday, April 21, I'll be hosting the second of my GETinsight Office Hours, this time taking some of the inspiration from Game-Based Learning Conference in London and exploring how leaders might approach supporting colleagues in schools in some of the most exciting learning going on these days. The session is at 12 noon/PST; 3:00 p.m./EST; 8:00 p.m. GMT), and you should register your interest beforehand.

Why bother?

The last event we had was small and beautifully formed - and the participants got a great deal out of it, me included. The discussion is of a high level, with people informed from their personal experience or perhaps just popping in for the first time on a particular subject, using my blog post as a starting block.

What time?

If you're wanting some East coast US lunchtime professional development, some after-school discussion on the East Coast, or post-dinner rants in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, please join us to share your own strategies, findings, great stories from the classroom, and importantly let us know what the barriers to innovation in your classroom might be and what leaders could do to make more game-based learning happen.

How do I join in?

Register your interest now. This takes only a couple of minutes. At the time of the event make sure that you are near a mobile or landline telephone, as this is as hi-tech as things need to be - you'll be called back so you can take part and pose your questions to me and other participants. The computer will let you see the chat and any web links participants share.

Try to join the chat a few minutes before the conference starts and make sure you share your name and location with me in the chatroom so that I can bring you in on the discussion.

Hope to see you there!
