Austin Education Game Jam

Think of it as a hack-a-thon focused on educational game development. Unfortunately, much of the educational games landscape is cluttered with poorly designed or simply uninteresting games that fail to deliver meaningful learning outcomes. Often, the games in education are not designed by expert game developers who specialize in fun, engaging technology, and therefore fail to enthrall the students who play them. Topnotch game developers with the guidance of students and educators came together over the weekend of March 7-9 and built games that are both fun and standards aligned. Industry professionals awarded three prizes: Best educational game content, best use of augmented reality tools, and best in show. Come see what these award winners developed in 48 hours!
