From May 24 - 27 is the seventh annual Games for Change Festival happening at Parsons, The New School for Design in New York City (and partly at NYU.) This is THE gathering for gamemakers, nonprofits, educators and academics interested in serious games, games-based learning and educational gaming. And Global Kids is going to be present in a few different capacities.
On May 24, at 2:45pm, Global Kids will be organizing a panel on "Spreading Serious Game Design: Global Kids' Playing For Keeps Capacity Building Program" about our ground-breaking serious game design program Playing for Keeps.
Then on May 25th, several Global Kids teen leaders will be on-hand to conduct a series of video interviews with gamemakers as part of the new Playing for Keeps Online Curriculum. (If you are interested in being interviewed at G4C, contact email@example.com.)
Finally on May 26, at 4:30pm, OLP Director Barry Joseph will be speaking on "Power of Design - Youth Created Games" Panel.
There are many more fantastic sessions, speakers, demos and networking that happens during the festival. It's not too late to register online.
