Playful Learning:  Building a Knowledge Base, Building a Movement

The field of learning games has made tremendous strides in the past decade; yet still has a long way to go in getting quality games in the hands of all learners for deeper, more meaningful learning experiences. This symposium will discuss the Playful Learning Initiative, which is an innovative knowledge base and community development strategy to help organize and mobilize the knowledge, resources and tools of our field into a network of impact. This session will speak to both game designers and teachers: we will cover key elements that game designers can create and design for so that teachers are better able to put those games to use in the classroom, and we'll discuss how teachers can contribute to the knowledge base and help their peers use games in the classroom.
