I am the Instructional Technology Integrator for a high school in Maine, USA where I primarily work with teachers and classroom practice. All of my students have laptops and it is becoming increasingly clear that the current model of classroom instruction is not meeting the needs of many learners. I have done some reading about student learning in games but I am interested to learn more about how to harness the gaming skills that students have for their classroom work. I also look forward to working with an international group. I formerly taught in International Schools in Colombia, Somalia, and Bangladesh.
