The Touro College Graduate School of Technology (GST) sponsored the Winter Gaming Institute, a workshop for educators to learn to create educational games for top mobile devices and platforms.

Prof. Irina Berman used GameSalad Creator software to demonstrate to teachers and current Touro students to develop desktop, mobile and online games that can be incorporated into their curriculum. Participants received certificates for completing six hours of professional development applicable toward the New York state teacher certification requirements. GST hosted a gaming institute last summer and is planning others for the spring and summer.
