You Are Here: Empowering Underrepresented Youth Through Game Design
with Maria Burns Ortiz
Wed July 15, 2020 | 11:50 AM – 12:10 PM
Register for free to see our CEO, Maria Burns Ortiz, present You Are Here: Empowering Underrepresented Youth Through Game Design.
Imagine never seeing anyone like you in the curriculum you’re taught or games you play. From inner-city to rural communities, this is a reality for too many youth. Game design can be a powerful tool in engaging underserved students in shaping their narrative. Using real-world examples – from Caribbean islands to Native American reservations – this session explores how game design can help students find new approaches to how their stories are told and amplified.
