Session Name:

Commercial Partnership - A Growing Trend?


Michael John will take this opportunity to describe GlassLab, a new partnership that involves the Gates and MacArthur Foundations, Electronic Arts, the Entertainment Software Association, and the Institute of Play (with additional partners ETS and Pearson as well) in a project to made educational software for middle school youth. It's an impressive collection of characters which just might be a harbinger of future growth. Already I have seen that the education reformers are deeply interested in the opinions and points of view from experienced commercial game designers. The session will discuss Glass - its history, construction and challenges, and suggest a path for deeper cooperation and involvement between the commercial and non-commercial game sectors.
