Games and Learning Society Conference 2013

First of all, WOW! In my 10 years as a teacher, I have attended my conferences. This, by far, was the most teacher friendly conference that I have ever attended. 

Let me clarify. It is true that California Teachers Association (CTA) or California Association of Teachers of English (CATE) host wonderful conferences for the teacher by the teachers. But outside of those conferences, many conferences often treat teachers as spectators or attendees rather than collaborators. At the GLS conference, I got the clear sense that I was considered their equal partners in solving our education problem. 

In addition, I collected lots of contact information from various participants, which I really appreciated. Some of my cadre members described the conference as an entry level conference where anyone could probably participate. As a person who is trying to “level up” (Yes, I am using some game terms here), I suppose that is not a bad thing. 

I have had so many wonderful memories from this conference. I can’t wait to return next year.
