In this session, educators, designers, and researchers will share stories and approaches for facilitating, implementing, and assessing youth game design for learning with the ARIS platform. Beth Stofflet will outline the pragmatics of classroom facilitation using as an example her middle school social science lesson in which students make games as an alternative to writing papers. Jim Mathews will discuss a range of implementations to illustrate design tradeoffs and considerations across learning contexts including in after school and place-based settings. Breanne Litts will describe strategies for capturing and assessing student learning, especially computational thinking skills, in ARIS game design activities.
