The K-12 Market
for Digital Games

Monday, July 8th at 4pm ET

REGISTER HERE<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?t=rd8einnab.0.szcwyfnab.qg84h4cab.49730&ts=S0922&r=3&p=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.instantpresenter.com%2FPIID%3DEB58D680854C>

Our community's next webinar will provide an analysis of the sales and market potential for digital learning games in the institutional K-12 market. Dr. John Richards will present an analysis that is the result of extensive market research and a series of over fifty structured interviews with leaders from the developer and publishing industries, and from the government, foundation, investment, and research communities.

John will approach learning games in terms of the functions they serve in the school context. Dr. Michael Levine will explore how games and simulations have made their way into the current discussions of the most pressing education reforms - from embedded assessments to personalized, highly engaging project-based learning to new forms of teacherpreparation.

He will be asking what teachers themselves think and will share how pioneering educators are responding to these new opportunities.

Michael's presentation will explore the work of the Games and Learning Publishing Council, which will be surveying, documenting and scaling promising teacher practices that are integrating game-based technologies.

Join John and Michael on July 8th to learn more about the K-12 market for digital games.
