Educators across the state gathered in Charlotte to participate in “SERIOUS GAMES: Immigration, History and Interactivity to Transform Classroom Learning.” Sponsored by the North Carolina Humanities Council in partnership with UNC-TV through a grant by WNET, this day-long workshop for middle and high school educators provided them with tools to invigorate their teaching practice and engage student learning in the humanities through the use of games and technology.
