On Wednesday, May 30, join the SES PTSA and special guest speaker (and SES parent) Scott Crabtree for a session on engaging your kids:

“Gamify” Your Parenting: What parents can learn from game developers

To engage many young people, parents and other adults must provide interaction and fun. Learn how to gamify your approach to kids so that you and they have more fun and engage with each other more. Learn from the masters of engagement—game developers—and the science that explains how games engage kids. Explore:

  • How your parenting can deliver engagement just like a great video game with Autonomy, Relatedness, Mastery, and Surprise
  • Why giving kids buy-in or why-in is so compelling to getting cooperation
  • What game developers know about mastery and why you should also be “rubber banding” to engage youth.
  • Learn the science that game developers use–and the practical steps any adult can take–to engage today’s youth.

Scott Crabtree’s repeat clients include DreamWorks, Boeing, Intel, HP, Activision/Blizzard (game companies), NBC, Enumclaw WA School District, Silver Falls School District, and Nike.

There will be free prizes and snacks! And childcare! Please contact Alison Taylor to ESVP for kid wrangling: strom.alison@gmail.com.
