Blindfold Games #295: International Orientation & Mobility Symposium

I’ve been invited to speak at the upcoming International Orientation and Mobility Symposium at the end of January.
This conference is designed to help  O&M Specialists, by immersing them in three days of interactive webinars.  They’ll walk away  with a notebook full of ideas and excited to help their students become their most independent selves.
My topic is “Using Expanded Core Curriculum-based mobile games to maximize educational outcome, by teaching skills specified in each student’s Individual Education Plan“.  Quite a mouthful.
They asked me to describe the three “take-aways” that teachers and specialists would achieve:

  • You will learn why “gamification” and “closed-loop digital curricula” leads to improved educational outcomes.
  • You will learn which Expanded Core Curriculum skills can easily be taught through mobile games and interactive simulations.
  • You will have an opportunity to see these games played by students, and to try out several of the games.
