Workshop:

"The Game Curriculum" (Game schooling) Our brains are wired to remember things that are interesting and exciting which is why learning from dull, dry textbooks is so painfully slow. Education at its best is really a lot of fun. Even learning math, grammar, science and geography facts can be painless if you have the right tools for your unique children. Learn how to use games and activities as an integral part of your curriculum. Learn how to select and use games to meet your children’s individual learning needs. Discover all the possibilities in games you already own and learn to adapt or even invent games to fit your family’s needs.
