Join us for a full day of learning on Monday 14 October at the Jasper Hotel, 489 Elizabeth St, Melbourne, Victoria

The annual Education in Games Summit (EiGS) is the premier professional learning event for teachers who want to bring videogames into their classroom presented by ACMI and the Victorian Department of Education and Training.

This one-day conference forms part of Melbourne International Games Week and offers a unique opportunity to hear from international leaders in game-based learning and to develop new classroom-focused skills and strategies in peer-led workshops.

Announcing the #EiGS19 keynote speaker - Dr Kate Ringland

Dr Ringland is an award-winning researcher specialising in understanding, designing, and developing technology to help support people with disabilities. Kate has used the Autcraft Minecraft server as a research environment to learn first-hand how it benefits young people with autism. With a PhD in Informatics from the University of California, Kate’s research contributes to the larger understanding of how people with disabilities experience and interact through social media and games. She is the co-founder of the non-profit organisation, Kaina Institute for Equitable Research, which looks at how technology can support people in marginalised communities.

In the jam-packed day you will also hear from: Millipede Games -- creators of the award winning Dumb Ways to Die games; Tom McGann and Kieran Nolan from Wooranna Park Primary on student-centred learning with Blockchain and esports; and many other great presenters highlighting the power of videogames in education.
