Teaching With Digital Games: a Video Case Study and Teacher Q&A with the Joan Ganz Cooney Center and Lisa Parisi

In 2012, as part of the first year of an initiative called the Games & Learning Publishing Council, the Joan Ganz Cooney Center visited 5 schools in the New York City area to document how early-adopter teachers are using digital games in the classroom.

One of our favorite visits was to Lisa Parisi’s 4th grade classroom at Denton Elementary in New Hyde Park, NY.  Lisa has been using games with her “Denton Dynamos” throughout her career as an elementary school teacher, but, in her opinion, switching over to digital games has accelerated her student’s STEM-related learning and helped her run a classroom based on self-directed learning and project-based work.
