Yesterday I attended a fascinating session hosted by the Bay Area Executives Meetup on the topic of the The Future of Games: enterprises, education, social + more.
The session was conducted via CISCO Public TelePresence Suites, WebEx, Livestream, Twitter – with attendees from all around the world (Santa Clara, CA, San Francisco, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo). The panelists all have experience in social gaming in general and social gaming for education. Some of the questions we considered were:
- How do we use the energy of gaming to support organizational activities and broader missions?
- What are the other possible futures for gaming?
I suspect that many of the ideas covered during this session are going to ferment in my brain and lead to a number of follow up blog posts. Kudos to Tatyana Kanzaveli for coordinating the session.
The panelists were:
- Lyle Fong – CEO & Co-Founder – Lithium Technologies
- Dr. Keith Devlin – Co-founder and Executive Director of the university’s H-STAR institute, a co-founder of the StanfordMedia X research network, and a Senior Researcher at CSLI.
- Douglas Goldstein – a eFuturist and CEO of iConecto, Inc.
- Mathias Crawford – Research Manager at the Institute for the Future
The session was moderated most excellently by Terri Griffith, Professor of Management, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University.
