Featured Keynote

Ben Rimes - @techsavvyed
Serious Play; Serious Learning

Rules, guidelines, regulations, and directives. They govern our classrooms, our students' lives at school and home, and our society. They also form the foundation for a favorite pastime of young and old alike; games. Whether it's cards, video games, sports, or other playful endeavors, we live our lives surrounded by the seriousness of play. Why not tap games, tinkering, making, and playfulness to help students discover the seriousness of learning?

About Ben: Blogger, Podcaster, Education Nerd, University of Michigan Interactive Communications & Simulations Group Fellow, Adjunct Professor of Educational Technology at Michigan State University, and creator of fine GIFs and viral videos. Ben Rimes believes that play is the heart of the human condition, and allowing simulations, tinkering, games, and playfulness flourish in the classroom is paramount to a fertile learning environment.
