What can be more interesting?
Technology is, and will continue to be, one of the main drivers of change in education. It’s not only shifting the way educators teach, but also how students learn, find information, and communicate with their peers -- even at an early age.

Consider this, from the consumer side: About three-quarters of children under 8 have used tablets or smartphones, according to a study from Common Sense Media. So too have one-third of toddlers under 2. Digital natives, indeed.

We want to explore the ways that technology, including video games and the gadgets we can’t seem to put down, can actually help young people pick up real-world skills and better make sense of the systems they live in. Moreover, we want discuss what type of skills children and young people need to be equipped with in order to navigate this changing world.

Moderator David Gauntlett, co-director of the Communications and Media Research Institute and professor at the University of Westminster, will explore trends, innovations, and the long-lasting impcat in gaming, technology and learning with input from our panel: 

+ Jan Von Meppen, lead game designer at LudInc
+ Jessica Berlinski, Chief Impact Officer of Adaptive Health Systems (AHS), a new double-bottom-line company focused on scaling Dept. of Education- and NIH-funded evidence-based Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) games
+ Bo Stjerne Thomsen, Director of Research & Learning at the LEGO Foundation
+ Jordan Shapiro, Temple University professor and edtech journalist
+ Jennifer Kotler Clarke, VP of Research & Evaluation at Sesame Workshop
