The Digital Media and Learning conference is one of my favorite professional events of the year. DML gathers several hundred of the leading practitioners, researchers and supporters of the field of digital learning for an intense three days of sharing, discussions, and strategizing. It's like an extended family for me, after many years of participating.
This year DML is taking place from March 6-8 in Boston, one of my favorite cities in the US, and the home of many innovators in the field. Along with attending and absorbing all of the awesome talks and sessions and exhibits at DML, I'll also be on stage for a couple of sessions.
On Friday March 7, I'll be MCing a morning featured session on "Connecting Learning Institutions – Building Learning Ecologies and Pathways" in the Grand Ballroom starting at 9am. I am incredibly excited about the session, which will feature awesome work done with youth in three different "learning lab" initiatives in three different parts of the US.
Then on Saturday, March 8, I'll be speaking at a session on "Developing STEM Literacy Through Gameplay and Game Design" along with folks from the American Museum of Natural History, the Field Museum, and several other awesome speakers.
