PD Track 2: ARIS Summit 2013 [Closed to accepted participants]

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

*Please note: ARIS Summit 2013 is for accepted participants only.

ARIS is an easy to use and powerful place-based mobile game platform for iOS that has been used in classrooms, museums, after-school workshops and summer institutes to structure exploration and inquiry through play, and to foster creativity problem-solving through game design. With tens of thousands of iPads coming into schools across the country, the ability to create personalized educational games is here!

This PD track brings together a core group of educators who are already using ARIS, in order to share experiences and innovative uses of the platform.  Advanced users will share practical innovations and solutions with each other, and meet with developers to discuss new feature requests and workflows.
