"Come on Down!"  Bringing the Joy of Educational Game Shows to Your Classroom

Attendees will learn the power of how an efficient game show can increase student engagement. Nate’s “game show formula” will break down the forethought needed to set a game show up for success, behavior management tips and strategies to keep the activity moving along at an appropriate pace, and reflection tools to enhance a game show’s effectiveness. This session will also cover how to adapt classic game shows like Jeopardy, Family Feud, and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire into the classroom, and for the more advanced planners a chance to create their own personal game show from scratch.

This workshop is applicable for educators K-12 of all subject areas. Active participation and fun will be at the core of this session, so bring your competitive spirit and creativity and enjoy a morning learning a new tool to further engage your students!

Presenter Info: Nate Stone has taught a variety of grades at independent schools for over eleven years. Quickly observing the importance of ingraining the love of learning in his students at an early age, Nate began seeking new ways to better engage his students. Along his teaching journey, he has created and invented over 50 original games and game shows to better bring his classroom to life. His students and peer teachers have nicknamed him "The Game Master." Nate continues to invent new games on a regular basis and has put student engagement at the core of his teaching philosophy. 

Nate recently ran his own Ottercation conference in Washington, D.C. and led a workshop at St. Andrew's Episcopal School in June. Nate has also presented at the AIMS (Association of Independent Maryland and DC Schools) Annual Conference and at the AIMS Teachers Retreat. This year, he hopes to present at the NAIS conference and give a TEDx talk.
