Video Games & Making Math More Like Things Students Like--Dan Meyer Lecture

Students around the world are playing millions of hours of video games every day and, in many cases, they’re enjoying those games more than they enjoy our math classes. Let’s look at several of the most popular video games of all time and pull out some lessons. As task designers, test givers, and classroom managers, what can we learn from those games?

DAN MEYER has taught high school mathematics, worked for Google, and is currently studying on a doctoral fellowship at Stanford University in the field of curriculum design and teacher education. He has won national awards for his work integrating multimedia across mathematics.

This session will center on how school mathematics can change to be more relevant and meaningful for students. All current K-12 teachers, teacher educators, administrators, parents, college math faculty and pre-service teachers should find this presentation extremely valuable.
