Games are a current topic of discussion and research in PK12 and higher education. The three presenters look at free, high quality Internet games and game templates suitable for PK12 teachers and pre-service teacher education students to use to teach and reinforce content knowledge. The presenters are university professors and in-service PK12 teachers. Game sites are described in detail and the recommended activities for each site are linked to national standards. A comprehensive handout will be available as well as a website (thelearningpage.com) describing games.
