This video is available to view for EconEdLink members only.


Teachers will be introduced to several online game platforms, including Blooket and Gimkit, which will make content come alive in a fun, competitive, and exciting way. We will learn how to use already established quizzes, incorporate our own Quizlet sets, and create new games from scratch. We will then discuss the various types of games that can be utilized to enhance instruction in your economics, personal finance, and social studies classes. We will have time to participate in some games in order to visualize how they work as well.
