Howdy folks,

just a reminder that to get some other folks involved from outside of the IAEP group looking at your educational games questions/comments/research you should think about joining the International Game Developers Association Special Interest group on Learning, Education and Games


We've got 112 members from Industry and Academia and it's a great way to find like minded folks
