Educational Gaming Conference: Live @ UB today!

Educational Gaming: LIVE @ University at Buffalo

As mentioned here before, the educational gaming mini-conference is on TODAY at 120 Clemens Hall, University at Buffalo. The UB DEVO unit has been recording the event and should be putting it the entire conference up as a real video stream (stay tuned for the link). In the mean time, I’ve got Alex Chisholm’s presentation shot with my new Sony M2, but I’ll need some time to put it up as a compressed video (which format do you prefer?).

As a reminder, here’s the program for the event. Note that the focus is on the technical and pedagogical context of educational gaming. Guest speakers present on the intersect of cognitive theory and online game environments:

11:00 – 12:30 Cognition/Culture in MMOGā€™s (Massively Multiplayer Online Games)
