NAMAC’s 2012 Conference is a singularly collaborative event, bringing in hundreds of participants from around the nation. In that spirit, we want to kick things off with some annoucements about important partner events — Mozilla’s Popcorn Story Camp, the Games+Learning+Society+
The grassroots, “indie” GLS Conference is one of the few destinations for creators of digital-learning media to meet and share in the field’s innovations, and explore how the field can serve the public interest. Each year, we foster in-depth conversation and social networking across diverse disciplines, including: game studies, education research, learning sciences, educational practice, media design and more. Our commitment is to reinvent learning both in and out of formal schools through the promise of games and simulations.
