Webinar Alert: edWeb.net Presents – Seeing the (Virtual) World Through Others’ Eyes: A Game-Based Approach to Developing More Positive Relationships
April 10, 2013
Seeing the (Virtual) World Through Others’ Eyes: A Game-Based Approach to Developing More Positive Relationships Thursday, April 11 at 4:00 pm ET REGISTER HERE for the webinar. Intuitively, our capacity to understand, compromise, and foster positive relationships with others should be greatly enhanced by our ability to “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes.” In edWeb.net’s next webinar, researchers from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education will share the results of a series of studies they conducted on using a game-based virtual environment and negotiation exercise. Harvard Doctoral Candidates Geoff Marietta and Elisabeth Hahn will present their findings, which show that walking around in someone else’s (virtual) shoes does indeed encourage compromise and facilitate more positive relationships. In addition, they will explore how these studies shed light on the vast potential for game-based virtual environments to improve the many different types of relationships found in education: student-student, teacher-student, family-school, or central office-school. Join Geoff and Elisabeth on April 11th to learn about game-based approaches for helping your students develop more positive relationships. *Please note that this webinar is not hosted by BrainPOP and all professional development certificates will be issued by edWeb.net.
