The 2009 Game Education Summit, taking place in Pittsburgh, is kicking off today. It’s billed as “the only conference where the video game industry and academics from around the world can come together to have meaningful conversations about the future of game development.”
Whether or not that’s true, many of the sessions cover topics that seem to be coming up more and more in the field of educational gaming, such as collaboration between game designers and teachers and incorporating game writing into students’ curriculum.
And if, like me, you’re not able to make it to the conference, they’re streaming the keynote speakers, so you can listen live, or go back afterwards and watch.
