Keynote: Permission to Play

The good news is, the conversation has shifted! We are no longer asking, "Do games
belong in the classroom?" and "Is there really learning going on in that video game?" Instead, the questions are now, "How do we get the right games into schools?" and "How do we provide the proper incentives and training for teachers and get those who are still "on the fence" about using games feeling empowered and capable. In my experience, what teachers and administrators are rarely given is the time, and the mindset for game full learning. One giant leap in the right direction is granting us all "Permission to Play!" It’s time to revisit and unleash your inner child and take the time to play games and experiment with exciting ways to drive innovation, creativity, and problem-solving in your classroom— essential skills for the future. Games, and the entertainment value of play, have the ability to teach and transform.
