:  Evolution in design and technology has significantly increased the use of games in the classroom, offering great potential to engage students in exciting new ways. Educational games have come a long way since Math Blaster, but there is a distressingly low number of games that are suitable for higher education. 

Biography: Michael Renne has been teaching at community colleges in Western Oregon since 2012, and he has been a member of ORMATYC since 2013. He is currently studying design principles for learning games to earn his PhD in Mathematics from Oregon State University, and he recently received a faculty innovator grant award from Linn-Benton Community College to implement a learning game in a mathematics class based on those principles.
