Elizabeth Lane Lawley, RIT Lab for Social Computing "Games Without Borders: Gaming Beyond Consoles and Screens

Lots of technical difficulties. Elizabeth was good humored if frustrated and showed non computer games
  • Reverse Scavenger Hunt
  • Cruel 2 B Kind
  • Passively Multiplayer Online Games
  • Yu-Gi-Oh & Pokemon tournaments
Games create opportunities for discussion and encourage creativity.

We need to take a leadership role in making sure that gaming horror stories are not at the top of the Google search results list.

She left us with a very empowering message: help other people understand that games are not bad. Tell them stories, don't cite statistics.
