On May 11th, I will be participating in a serious gaming panel at the National Summit on Serious Games in Higher Education. Representatives from across the country will gather at Excelsior College in Albany, NY where we will discuss the use of educational-based video games with a focus on increasing student engagement and interactivity. As I told Dennis Carter in the article “Experts push gaming as a ‘serious’ element of higher education,” I believe classroom gaming remains on the tinkering and experimental part of the learning continuum. If educators with gaming experience gain control of curriculum, it will take a more central role. When you think about games in the classroom, it’s not single shooter games, it’s about real thinking and strategy games. Watch the discussion unfold LIVE online starting Friday, May 11th at 10:30am (ET). Check it out!
