Elkhorn Crossing School (Scott County) will host a free professional development Game Design Jam July 9-11 presented by the Learning Games Network, a non-profit spin-off of the MIT Education Arcade that seeks to bridge the gap between research and practice in game-based education.

The Game Design Jam will introduce teachers to new instructional resources and work with them to develop coaching strategies that can be used to guide students through research and creative game design processes.

The deadline to apply is April 30.
