Bill will be presenting GBH’s work in media literacy in DC this week at the national Family Online Safety Institute Conference this week as part of a discussion entitled, “Don’t Just Press Play: Quality Content for Kids.”
The 14th international conference on Interaction Design & Children will be held on June 21-24, 2015 in Boston, Massachusetts. The IDC conference’s mission is to bring together researchers, designers and educators to explore new forms of technology, design and engaged learning among children. The conference incorporates papers, presentations, speakers, workshops, participatory design experiences and discussions on how to create better interactive experiences for children.
IDC 2015 will offer a wide-ranging program, supporting and facilitating the exchange of ideas within and between all of these communities. The theme for this year is Empowering Children to Create. The focus will be on technology support for creativity, coding, and maker types of endeavors, with two related themes: Developmentally Appropriate Design and Innovative Interfaces.
Jillian and Louise will be presenting the Next Gen projects with our research partners.
Bill will be moderating an industry panel featuring Lego, Leapfrog, PBS KIDS, Toca Boca, Sesame Workshop, Nickelodeon and Google.
Looking forward to attending this.
How do we begin to tap into the power of games to project and engage those forces to optimize communication, learning, health care and a myriad of other applications beyond games?
On April 13, 2015, The MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge will host a half-day conference that will explore how we can use games to rewire our mind, ultimately motivating ourselves to engage, learn, change bad habits and more…all while we play.
