Games in Schools, Clubs, Homes and Fandom Communities: Opportunities and Challenges in Understanding Learning and Collaboration
The last two years have witnessed a marked rise in interest across various academies in leveraging game technologies toward educational ends: the Woodrow Wilson Foundation’s Serious Games Initiative, the MacArthur Foundation Digital Media and Learning Program, and the Federation of American Scientists Summit, to name a few. In this symposium, the participants will examine learning and collaboration in different gaming contexts with the goal to broaden the discussion about opportunities and challenges ahead of us.
