   Join the inaugural Gaming in Ed conference. This is a free event
   bringing together educators, researchers, game developers and innovators
   from around the world, being held Monday September 15th - Friday September
   19th. Whether you're passionate about game-based learning or just getting
   your toes wet, Gaming in Ed celebrates the value that games offer in
   educational settings: a safe environment for taking on new roles,
   opportunities for creative problem solving and experimenting, and learning
   from failure.  When done well, games can foster collaboration, strengthen
   critical and systems thinking, pose adaptive challenges, and spark inquiry.
   With guidance from educators, students aren't just players, but critical
   evaluators of games and game designers themselves. This conference will
   offer a variety of perspectives, from educators and game developers to
   researchers and administrators. Our goal is to have you walk away with
   practical information and inspiration for furthering game-based learning in
   class and beyond. Learn more atwww.gamingined.com.
