SXSW 2015: Austin Education Game Jam

Mar 14, 2015
My company, Globaloria, co-sponsored the Austin Education Game Jam (March 7-14), a professional game development contest inspiring the creation of high quality and commercially viable video games for education. It was inspiring to see game developers make mobile and online games with education focus. This competition continues the White House Game Jam and President Obama's vision that education should be fun, interactive, and always evolving with students' needs. Scott Lipton (Network Director of South/Central, Globaloria) organized it in collaboration with Erik Martin (U.S. Department of Education, Office of Education Technology), Sean Duffy (Founder, EdTech Austin), Chelsea Biggerstaff (STEM Programs Coordinator, Skillpoint Alliance), Drew Scheberle (Senior Vice President, Austin Chamber of Commerce) and their fellow colleagues. The Austin Game Jam launch at Capital Factory. After a week, finalists and winners were announced at the Geek Stage of the Gaming Expo at SXSWInteractive. The Austin gaming community came together to participate in the development of new, high-quality games for education. Sharing events from the week that started at SXSWedu and ended at SXSWInteractive.
