Making Games of History in NBC News' iCue Speaker/s: Jason Haas (MIT Media Lab/Education Arcade) Day / Time / Location: Thursday 3:20- 3:45 Ballroom G Track / Duration / Format / Audience Level: Gamification Day / 25-Minute / Lecture / Intermediate GDC Vault Recording: Video Description: Jason Haas of MIT's Education Arcade will share lessons learned from his work creating and studying NBC News' 2008 multimedia website, iCue. The site, now defunct, featured games among a number of activities, all based around digital "cards" made from the network's news archives. Haas will describe the Education Arcade's philosophies in creating learning games and how iCue, both successfully and not, "gamified" the investigation of history and civics. Since gamification penetrates into the education space, this session will dig into the deeper connections between learning, motivation, and games why they're crucial.
