The AIIDE12 main conference kicks off with a keynote by Zoran Popović on Wednesday, Oct 10!
Director Zoran Popović spoke at NBC News’ Education Nation today about the potential for games to transform education. Watch Popović full discussion with NBC’s Tamron Hall below:
Game-based learning has the ability to fundamentally change education. Imagine a world whree students poured their energy into a game that helped teach them math and they actually enjoyed it. At the Education Nation Summit, we’ll witness the power and potential of gaming to provide exciting tools for teachers to help personalize learning, engage students in fun new ways, and adapt in real-time to improve student learning. The session will include a fun demonstration and crowd-sourcing exercise in which Summit delegates will help create a new game for the nation’s classrooms.
