    How can we borrow from video games to build meaningful distance learning experiences? As an emergency response, educators made a shift to distance learning almost overnight with mitigated success: all over the country, districts report participation rates in distance learning to be as low as 50%. Meanwhile, engagement with video games is at an all-time high. Together, we’ll learn what we can borrow from video games to rethink distance learning, motivate students, and develop standards to make them better distance learners.
