Course Overview

Game-based learning has evolved to the point where students are creating and learning in artificial and virtual realities. But not long ago, games were played on the playground and on boards; with cards and with dice. How do games promote learning? Gaming and critical thinking skills have gone together for as long as games have had a place in classrooms. During this week of camp, students will activate their critical thinking skills in order to play a broad variety of games: card games, puzzles, board games, computer games, videos games, escape rooms, and more. Students will reflect on what thinking skills they need to be effective players and consider how those skills will help them on the road to academic success.

Please Note: Niner Academy and many 49er Minor camps are considered college-preparatory and/or career readiness camp programs for teens. Often through guest speakers, during field trips, and through class and peer-driven discussion, we may discuss societal and social issues. Campers' opinions and perspectives may differ from those of their peers and/or guest speakers; we encourage open discussion during camp. We seek to establish a camp environment where all voices are heard and opinions are respected.
