Gaming in Ed - Games and Learning in Education

Gaming in Ed

We are excited to announce 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 - Thursday September 18th.

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 offers 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.

To attend the conference, to be kept informed of the latest conference news and updates, and/or to submit to present, please
