Join us as we shine a light on adding SWAG to simulations with gifted students! Our simulations are designed with Story-line, Wonder, Authenticity, and Grit to provide rigor, require social interaction, integrate technology, and stimulate creative thinking and problem solving. In this session, participants will investigate how to implement simulations with SWAG to stimulate student engagement. Simulation definitions, basic design and each tenet of SWAG will be explored. Practical “how-to” materials to implement critical and creative thinking and problem solving, or modified for curriculum content, will be included. Come learn how to successfully implement simulations with SWAG!
