|Session Name:||Cuba, Nairobi, Borneo, Oh My! Creating Games Education (Very) Abroad|
|Company Name(s):||American University Game Lab|
|Track / Format:||Educators Summit|
|Overview:||In 2017, the world learned of Cuba's first indie game, as the US opened and closed its doors to Cuba. How do you bring the wonders of game design and development across political and national borders? How do you design and develop educational programs not only abroad, but in communities that may offer little or no such education? How do you teach game design and development without the internet? Drawing from the experience of providing games workshops and programs in Cuba, Nairobi, and Borneo, this talk gives you the full process for bringing games education abroad.|
