Along with research and conversation, this session includes audience participation, perspectives from award-winning game designers and developers at TERC, MIT Education Arcade, FableVision Studios, and the research team from EdGE at TERC. The panel of experts will be moderated by FableVision Executive Producer Peter Stidwill, who formerly worked at Learning Games Network during the development and revitalization of the game.
