game education, jane mcgonical

Today I was speaking of games literacy and game cultures for an audience of educators in “Media Education Fair” they organised in Tampere Finlayson area. Good discussions, it is just so frustrating to know how slowly we can see games entering the phase of more diverse content, and increased applicability in normal classroom situations, for example.

As an advance notice, please mark into your calendar Jane McGonigal’s talk, taking place in Helsinki (and Tampere via teleconference) next Tuesday. (See: News and Events at the University of Tampere, UTa.)
