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.
