The average child born in the United States today will spend as much time playing digital games as they will in the classroom. And “gaming” begins early (think apps on phones and tablets). How can we help kids maximize the creativity-boosting skills they develop playing games and apply them in their everyday lives? Join us in a discussion with keynote speaker Jane McGonigal, a world-renowned designer of alternate reality games and author of SuperBetter, as she talks about what the latest research in neuroscience and psychology tells us about how “gamers” can become creative, resilient, and empathetic problem solvers in real life.
