Games & Learning Conference

May 29, 2014
Games and Leearning Conference

The roles of teacher/learner and creator/consumer are changing because of new generative platforms, the shift from print to digital, and wider accessibility. Media technologies are empowering organizations and individuals to create personalized and interactive content that is BOTH educational and fun. This is transforming consumption experiences as well as pedagogical techniques.

On May 29th, mediaX explored frontiers in the art and science of games, why storytelling matters, the impact of multitasking, and measuring learning outcomes of video games.
