Board Gaming with Education

Apr 20, 2020

Dustin has the privilege to talk to game-based science teacher, Rodger Moore, and asks him about his experiences with integrating games in the classroom. Rodger teaches in Reno, Nevada and has a career in education that spans about 25 years where he has enjoyed finding ways to allow games to enrich the educational experience of his students. Rodger gives veteran tips on breaking into game-based education. We also learn about his contribution to the book Learning, Education & Games, Volume 3: 100 Games to Use in the Classroom & Beyond as well his plans to retire so he can focus creatively on developing lesson plans based on games.
