Play Games and Change the World?

Oct 9, 2012

Games have emerged from the rec room and found a place in the classroom, onto cellphones, advertising, and as we’ll hear, into activism, relationships, and the way we view the world. Colleen Macklin is working to make us more game-literate. She designs games based not on winning or losing, but on learning and experiencing the creative, social and political universe outside the screen. That’s part of what she’ll be talking about as a keynote speaker at the NH Arts Education conference on Saturday October 20th. Colleen Macklin is Associate Professor of Communication Design and Technology at Parsons, The New School for Design in New York City.
