Learn How a Teacher Goes from Using One Game in Class to Rolling Out a Statewide STEM Program Using Games:  Tammie Schrader, Washington State Association of Educational Service Districts

Tammie Schrader will shared her journey from never having played a video game to speaking at the White House on gamification and then taking that vision and expanding it to 39 school districts throughout her state on Tuesday, April 11, 2017.

As a classroom science teacher it became very clear what students loved to do in their spare time, play video games. Tammie will be explain how she decided to start, implement, maintain and then expand the idea of using play in education, connecting her vision to both the community and higher education institutions.

In the State of Washington, Tammie has won the support of community colleges, four major universities, the library system, local businesses and early learning centers in a collaborative, Pre K -16 plan to implement game play to meet the educational as well as social and emotional needs of children.
