Opening comments by the VP of Learning Games Network, Kurt Squire.

Society, Learning and Games
Drew Davidson

This is the 10th anniversary of the Games+Learning+Society Conference. As such, it’s an interesting time to look back to see what we have done, but even more, it’s important to look forward and plan on what we should try to achieve. This keynote will take a look at the challenges and successes of GLS, and how our society has learned about games. Throughout, we’ll explore the promise, problems and potential of having societal impact on a large-scale, which I contend will only happen through successful collaborations that include all the parties invested in the process.
