Presenters will include:

John Arroyo
http://www.remixin.com

Jeremy Douglass

People need affordable learning games. Worldwide, 4.1 billion people earn under $3,000 per year, meaning that even a $100 computer is often out of reach for the world’s emerging middle class. Playpower is targeting a $10 platform based on the 8-bit 6502 microprocessor that makes learning games affordable for “the other 90%.” Playpower designs high quality learning games, conducts field trials to confirm that they work, and fosters collaborations between game designers, cognitive scientists and NGOs.

OPEN DORK

your project or idea and get feedback from the group. No “formal”
