As promised earlier, here are the details of my speaking engagement:
I'll be speaking twice, once on Thursday July 5 at 9am, and again on Friday July 6 at 3pm.
The title of the talk is "Why use games in a classroom?" but that's actually not the best title. Presumably everyone attending Origins already understands the positive effects of gaming, and anyone attending a session for teachers is already on board with the whole games-for-learning thing. I'll actually be talking about some basic game design theory (i.e. "What Makes Games Fun") and then applying that to education, to make the class time more engaging for students.
If you're in the area, drop by and say hi!
