Game Study

The Game Study is hosted by Participate’s Mike Washburn and Steve Issacs.  Every Monday afternoon, Mike and Steve take a deep dive into a game. Think “book study” but for games! We know games have incredible narrative power, Mike and Steve dig into those narratives and discuss how the game of choice can be used in the classroom. 

Joining Mike and Steve are some of the world’s best experts in Game-based Learning who have spent time teaching with the game being studied.

Unscripted is hosted by Brad Shreffler. Every Tuesday, Brad takes a deep dive into coding with viewers. This is a truly collaborative learning experience, Brad doesn't have all the answers, but he's ready to learn something new with you! Unscripted is a project-based learning coding show. What is started in one show carries on for a number of episodes through to completion. 

Occasionally, a co-host joins Brad. This co-host generally has unique experience valuable to Brad at specific points in the project.
