Wizard World Comic Con and I have joined forces to bring you this epic panel!
4:00 – 4:45PM WHAT VIDEO GAMES CAN TEACH
Advocating for a learner-centered approach often brings up the question, “Won’t my kids just play video games all day?” Although the answer to that is multi-faceted, we know that no experience is devoid of learning. And, in fact, some may have more opportunities for development than we first believe. Join special guests Genese Davis (The Holder’s Dominion & MMORPG.com,) Eric Kieron (Warcraft, Diablo, Starcraft,) Matt Raithel (Studio Director, Graphite Lab,) Carol Mertz (Happy Badger Studio,) and Sam Coster (Butterscotch Shenanigans) as they discuss the benefits and potential drawbacks to video games and how to navigate both. This high-powered panel will plunge into video game culture and its social development divulging how video games affect our lives and education. (ROOM 144)
