Games and the Curriculum: Toward a New Educational Model

I recently spoke at Games and the Curriculum: Toward a New Educational Model, a symposium in New York hosted by Excelsior College.  Speakers included Clark Aldrich (Clark Aldrich Designs), Jon Aleckson (Web Courseworks Ltd), Tobi Saulnier (1st Playable Productions) and Ben DeVane (University of Florida) and Lee Sheldon (RPI).

We touched upon several issues at the two-hour symposium, including whether games can improve student persistence, retention, and success and how games can transform curriculum and lead to greater student engagement and better learning outcomes.
