Back to School
This Friday, February 27, I’ll be at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, appearing on a panel at the annual summit meeting for the Wisconsin Alliance for Arts Education. It’s at 1:30 PM in the Student Union. The topic is “What Do They Know About Learning, Kids, and Games?” Tim Gerritsen, my boss at Human Head Studios, will be there with me, along with Henry Jenkins (the Director of the Comparative Media Studies Program at MIT), James Paul Gee (a professor at the UW who wrote What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy), and Kurt Squire (an assistant professors at the UW who co-directs The Education Arcade. Apparently I’ll just be there as the pretty face.
