Gamers Advancing Meaningful Education (G.A.M.E) is an online community of educators who game. At its core is an online synchronous gaming community. This intellectually curious network of educators develop curriculum, offer online open courses, webinars and F2F presentations on the opportunities and deeper learning that takes place in games. The Cognitive Dissonance Educator guild in World of Warcraft is the "home base" where this group regularly plays online. This community is involved in WoW in School, EduMachinima Fest, Virtual Worlds and Games UnSymposium, Games MOOC and open courses on P2PU. G.A.M.E. is for educators who game, want to learn how to game, and want to incorporate gaming strategies into teaching and learning. Participants will become familiar with the use of massively online roleplaying games, commercial off-shelf games and sandbox genre games in their quest to innovate teaching and learning. All educators are welcome, novice, dabbler, and hardcore gamer. Come game with us to level up on teaching and learning. It’s more than an affinity space for educators who game – it’s a guild.
