Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

As someone seeking to inspire students, taking risks can be daunting. Aligning with the Global Education mission of connecting educators and organizations, Playful Learning is a friendly and comprehensive network that provides educators with an online space where they can share, collaborate, and support colleagues interested in the power of game-based learning. It is also a simple, intuitive platform for accessing core information about games - whether designed specifically for education or otherwise - that can be used for learning. Playful Learning also facilitates experts and peer knowledge about each game and how it can be used for effective learning. The initiative is designed for educators to develop confidence in using all kinds of games effectively for learning. While the primary audience are teachers and educational administrators, Playful Learning activities also provide valuable data, information, and insights for game designers, publishers, policy makers, education associations, governments, and corporations.

    Dear Benevolent Project Overlord, 

    As much as I want to support Playful Learning, I have to point out that this is not a general ed tech conference. It's focused on global collaboration. Please take a look at our mission and revise accordingly.



    • Hi Lucy,

      I've revised the language of our presentation proposal so that it focuses on the Playful Learning network, which I feel aligns nicely with the Global Education mission. We will ensure that our presentation focuses on connecting educators through our network. 

      Please let me know if this works, or if you'd like something different.

        I'm approving this, but I think you need more language addressing any global components. Maybe you can highlight some resources from other countries or that promote collaboration.
