Gaming Supports the Universal Construct: Flexibility and Adaptability

The Universal Constructs were identified following an analysis of the competencies and habits of mind needed for future successes in careers, college and citizenry. They include:
  • Critical Thinking
  • Complex Communication
  • Creativity
  • Collaboration
  • Flexibility and Adaptability
  • Productivity and Accountability
But how do you help students develop proficiency around the Universal Constructs? One possible answer is through gaming. Video games provide opportunities for students to use thinking skills that may later be applied to real-world situations. 

Watch the video below as it explains how video games can support students in becoming flexible and adaptable.
