This webinar recording is from the ISTE Professional Learning Series. It aired on Wednesday, September 13, 2017.

Today’s online interactive fiction games and “games for change” let students take on the roles of people from different backgrounds and with different experiences. We’ll introduce games that allow students to appreciate the differences in others and help them understand a number of cultural traditions. We’ll also share guidelines for discussions and project-based learning with these games. 

Presented by the ISTE Games and Simulations Network.
