Professional learning opportunityPosted: March 5, 2008
I wish I could get to this conference. Or ‘professional learning opportunity’ as we now call them…
It reminds me of the Far Side cartoon with the kid playing games on a console while his optimistic parents look on, dreaming of his magnificent career in highly-paid game-testing roles. I’d post a copy of it but I’d probably be swamped by hordes of lawyers.
Mind you, I went to uni with a bloke who started out programming racing games, but ended up working for the European Space Agency on their satellite guidance team.
So while we can appreciate the joke, there is in fact a huge growth potential in computer-centric entertainment. GamesEdu looks to be just one way of bringing together an industry and its ‘suppliers’.
