Webinar with CR Game Developers on Oct 13th
Readers might be interested in an online session I’ll be hosting on October 13th (3 pm ET) entitled Conflict Resolution Educational Gaming: Behind the Scenes with Harmony Island and Cool School. As part of the Conflict Resolution Day festivities (or week in this case), I’ll be joined by gaming industry veteran FJ Lennon and developmental psychologist Melanie Killen (University of Maryland School of Education), both part of the team that developed Cool School: Where Peace Rules, and Richard Goldsworthy, Director of R&D for Academic Edge, Inc., developers of Harmony Island: A Tropical Adventure in Conflict Resolution. These games feature high quality animation and research-based learning scenarios designed to teach young people conflict resolution skills and knowledge. We’ll talk with the developers about some of the challenges and opportunities in the CR gaming field. As a special bonus, attendees to the webinar will be entered into a drawing to win free copies of the games.
