Board Games for Teaching and Learning

Unfortunately I had to miss THATCamp Games II this year, held last month at Case Western Reserve University. Luckily (and in the traditional THATCamp spirit) attendees have shared their collaborative notes (and games!) from the unconference so those of us who weren’t there can catch up. And Anastasia Salter, who teaches information arts and technologies at the University of Baltimore, wrote up her experiences leading a pre-conference workshop on making board games in the classroom. I know lots of us in the CUNY Games Network are interested in non-digital games for teaching — I highly recommend Salter’s article, it’s well worth a read.
