What’s hap­pen­ing now

Con­fer­ence on dig­i­tal game-​based learn­ing «Game ON!» is orga­nized in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Youth Time Move­ment and Lomonosov Moscow State Uni­ver­sity. Now con­fer­ence entered the active phase of its real­iza­tion. We have suc­cess­fully reached agree­ments with the lead­ing uni­ver­si­ties and lead­ing busi­ness com­pa­nies in Rus­sia, who have nec­es­sary expe­ri­ence in the field of gam­ing. The con­fer­ence is expected to become an effi­cient inter­na­tional ground for the inter­ac­tion of edu­ca­tion and busi­ness spheres rep­re­sen­ta­tives, soft­ware man­u­fac­tur­ers, coach prac­ti­tion­ers and students.

Within the Con­fer­ence it is planned to host sev­eral ple­nary ses­sions as well as round­table dis­cus­sions on fol­low­ing issues: «Meth­ods of devel­op­ing inter­ac­tive com­puter tech­nolo­gies in edu­ca­tion», «Appli­ca­tion of gam­ing tech­nolo­gies in busi­ness», «Inter­ac­tive tech­nolo­gies in jour­nal­ism and PR», «Inter­ac­tive tech­nolo­gies in ele­men­tary edu­ca­tion», «Inter­ac­tive tech­nolo­gies in sec­ondary and tech­ni­cal edu­ca­tion», «Speci­ficity of apply­ing gam­ing tech­nolo­gies in uni­ver­sity edu­ca­tion» etc.

Invited experts of the Con­fer­ence are for­eign pro­fes­sion­als in gam­ing tech­nolo­gies in edu­ca­tion such as Maja Pivec, one of the world experts in game mechan­ics in edu­ca­tion, pro­fes­sor of FH JOAN­NEUM Uni­ver­sity of Applied Sci­ences, Aus­tria; Ayelet Weiz­man, an expert in the field of apply­ing gam­ing meth­ods in sci­ence, pro­fes­sor of Israel’s largest Research and Train­ing Cen­ter - the Hebrew Uni­ver­sity of Jerusalem; Maria Kor­daki, an expert in edu­ca­tional com­puter games, pro­fes­sor of the Uni­ver­sity of the Aegean, Greece; Rob van Kra­nen­burg, the project man­ager of «the Inter­net of Things» within the Euro­pean Union pro­gramme, Belgium.
