The Current State of Digital Game-based Learning

Digital game-based learning (DGBL) is a powerful tool in K-12 education that can have a statistically significant impact on student achievement and attitude towards learning. In this discussion, our diverse panel of experts including current and former K-12 educators and a notable researcher at a large, public university will discuss the current state of DGBL including trends in use and adoption (pre- and post-pandemic) as well as opportunities to improve DGBL, such as improved data integration.
