What motivates you to teach, learn and work in EMS? Is it the money you make, or could it be the great schedule we all keep? Most likely, the answer is; the good we can do when things go right and are fun. If we can keep the classroom moving and fun, the students will learn while enjoying the topics we have to present. Is it possible that if we utilize educational games in the classroom that students might enjoy learning? Implementing and building educational games is an art form that Kirk and Margaret have taken to another level. Join them for this NEW extended class on how to make, use and implement games into your classroom and take your teaching to another level.
