The Games in Education conference is a multi-day symposium which focuses on the topic of using video games to supplement and inspire in-classroom education! Participants span early childhood through post secondary educators in New York’s Capital District and surrounding regions who are interested in finding ways to use video games and related technology to enrich and inspire interest by students in core curriculum topics. The symposium has run annually since 2007 and is free for educators to attend.
I have had the pleasure of attending the symposium for many years and I have found the event a wonderful learning opportunity! At previous events, I was able to network with other teachers and to connect with game developers. We had engaging discussions about the power of gaming in education and I look forward to this event every year.
The Games in Education conference will be held this summer on August 1st and 2nd. It will be hosted by the Esteves School of Education at Sage College in Troy, NY.
