How Students and Teachers are Using Video and Gaming for Learning

 

Thursday, May 5, Speak Up's 2016 Congressional Briefing

This is a Lunch Briefing: How Students and Teachers are Using Video and Gaming for Learning

Project Tomorrow is releasing the Speak Up 2015 National Findings, focused on how students and educators are using videos and online games for learning, during a Congressional Briefing on May 5th. The briefing will be held from 12:00-1:30 PM in Rayburn House Office Building Room B339. Lunch will be provided.
 
Speak Up is an initiative of Project Tomorrow, the country's leading nonprofit organization that works to make students' voices heard in education. Each year, the Speak Up National Research Project polls students, parents and educators about the role of technology in education both in and out of the classroom, as well as their views and aspirations for how technology should be used in the future. In 2015, more than 500,000 online surveys were submitted from stakeholders throughout the education community. 
 
The briefing is a chance to hear directly from a panel of students and teachers about how they are using and creating videos for learning and how gaming is being used in and out of school for learning.
 
The data collected by Speak Up provides the research-based information needed to guide policy makers as they work to help students, educators, and parents leverage technology to improve teaching and learning.
