Conversation 115 – Zack Hartzman – Game to Learn

By Shane Lawrence

Ed is a weekly podcast about the teaching life. No lists, no inspirational quotes: just honest convo's about the lives of teachers.

There’s games and there’s gamification. Zack Hartzman is about the former. He talks with me about his experiences bringing videogames into his classroom and how it has helped his students – mostly recent immigrants and ELL’s – to engage with English and literature in an active and meaningful way. Along with recommendations for useful texts, Zack shares about the benefits and the how-to’s as well.
