Digital media think-tank and creative workshop X|Media|Lab has announced that its forthcoming “Learning from Games” workshop will be held from December 6-8th in Singapore.
Established in Australia and Singapore, X|Media|Lab features a range of the world’s outstanding digital media practitioners, innovators, and power-brokers, and holds intensive two-day creative workshop and international network for selected teams who get to work directly on their own project ideas with a range of the world’s best digital media experts.
Noting that "the potential of education, training, pedagogical, and serious games (‘game-based learning’) is increasing exponentially," the upcoming Singapore conference will bring together a number of International Mentors to lecture on the subject.
The list of mentors thus far includes: Serious Games Summit's Noah Falstein, Eidos' Ian Livingstone, Caryl Shaw, producer of The Sims
, Beijing Olympics training and simulation game developer Yang Nanzheng, Nokia Games Research Lab's Jyri Salomaa, University of Southern California EA Games Innovation Lab's Tracy Fullerton, former Sony Europe head and Codemasters chairman Chris Deering, and many others.
The first day's conference will showcase those mentors and is aimed at teachers, educators, policy people, and games professionals interested in all dimensions of ‘game-based learning’.
Following that, the titular Lab will highlight selected projects with any education or training, pedagogical, ‘serious’, or game-based learning applications. The selected Lab projects will work on their own project ideas directly with the mentors in the Lab’s unique and highly successful format of one-on-one consultations between the project teams and the Mentors.
