Hi folks,

I'm happy to announce a new Special Interest Group of the International Game Developers Association, which will focus on games designed for learning in formal and informal contexts and on commercial entertainment titles used for learning as well.

The IGDA began, and still primarily is, a professional organization for commercial game developers.  That said, over recent years it has been embracing the less commercial side as well.  Within the IDGA are a raft of game designers who understand how to make games fun and engaging as well as educators interested in getting involved with games as a learning tool.  Most of the IGDA SIGS, including ours, require registration, but not membership or fees to join.

I invite those of you in San Francisco to join us in the IGDA Booth at GDC on Wednesday the 7th at 2:00 pm.  While the conference is a paid conference, the IGDA booth is usually in the lobby of one of the Moscone buildings and therefore does not require a conference registration badge to access.

I invite all of you interested in games and learning to  join our  Google Group at http://groups.google.com/group/igdaleg

Last but not least, PASS IT ON!  :-)

Hope to see you in SF or on-line.
