The Games4Ed Initiative: Immersive Learning Through Games
Games4Ed (G4E) is a newly formed initiative designed to take a critical look at furthering opportunities to use games as a vehicle to advance learning opportunities for our students.

Our goal is to establish collaborations among educators, researchers, game developers, publishers and policy makers to further the use of games to help the education sector fulfill the mission of preparing children to become successful 21st century learners and citizens.

In this session we will explore 5 critical issues that have the potential to blow open the doors for fun immersive learning through games. Please be prepared to participate, as we all know that the truest path to engaged learning starts with active participation.
