GBL 2010 - Game Based Learning Conference-"VIDEO GAMES, SOCIAL MEDIA & LEARNING" GBL 2010



VenueLondon, UK - United Kingdom UK - United Kingdom



Topics/Call fo Papers


The inaugural Game Based Learning Conference in 2009 proved successful beyond all expectations where our trademark community of international thought leaders, innovators and practitioners from the education, electronics and entertainment sectors came together to explore how video games and social media are positively transforming learning.

The event was provocative, challenging and inspiring, thus setting the benchmark for our 2010 conference to surpass.

Game Based Learning 2010 takes place over two full days and includes an evening social event to make valuable connections in a relaxed environment. With a main conference programme running during these two days combined with breakout sessions for special interest groups there is something for everyone with an interest in using gaming and social media technology to improve learning, teaching and training.

GBL 2010 will explore successful deployments and evidence for both commercial off the shelf (COTS) as well as bespoke serious games in the areas of formal and informal education in schools and universities, healthcare, military, corporate training, banking together with workshops on game procurement and a dedicated strand featuring leading international research in Game Based Learning.
