Understanding Globaloria as the Subject of Research (PDF)
The Development of a Research Framework to Examine Teacher Professional Development and Educator Experiences in Globaloria from Pilot Year 1 (PDF)
Globaloria-WV educators came together for their third Globaloria Academy on January 23-24 in Charleston. They focused on sharpening their own digital literacies and improving their game-making and programming capacities. This year, the Globaloria Principals were also invited to learn hands-on. This marked the first time Globaloria Principals were introduced to using the Globaloria platform. "Our Principals loved it - all of sudden they were creating and editing wiki pages, leaving comments to students on their pages, blogging and sketching ideas for their own games. They experienced Globaloria just as their students would. It helped them strategize how Globaloria could scale in their schools," said Shannon Sullivan, Director of Programs, who ran the academies with her team and with support from the West Virginia Center for Professional Development.
