“We’ve been seeing a trend in video game design development in recent years — both for the consumer markets and educational markets — toward exploring more serious, complex issues that often contain a lot of emotional content,” says Tanner Higgin, senior manager of education content for Common Sense Media.
Higgin was interviewed because his work embodies the DML2014 Conference theme and his panel provides a strong example of the kind of projects and programs you’ll be introduced to at the DML Conference. He will share his expertise on video game development at the “Playing for Keeps: Gameful Design for Real-World Action and Social Change” panel, taking place from 9 to 10:30 a.m. March 7.
The Digital Media and Learning Conference is supported by the MacArthur Foundation and organized by the Digital Media and Learning Research Hub, located at the University of California’s systemwide Humanities Research Institute at UC Irvine.
