Virtually Connecting at #cls2018: August 2-3

We’re excited to be Virtually Connecting from Connected Learning Summit 2018 (#cls2018) at MIT in Cambridge, MA.

The mission of the Connected Learning Summit is to fuel a growing movement of innovators harnessing emerging technology to expand access to participatory, playful, and creative learning.

The Connected Learning Summit represents a merger between three community events with this shared vision and values: the Digital Media and Learning Conference, the Games+Learning+Society Conference, and Sandbox Summit. With a unique focus on cross-sector connections and progressive and catalytic innovation, this event brings together leading researchers, educators and developers.

The conference program includes a mix of engaging presentation and workshop formats ranging from speculative design, to game walkthroughs, sharing work in progress, and research panels.

If you’re interested in having conversations with some of the folks onsite at #cls2018, we have the following sessions planned.
