Serious Unseriousness: Exploring Games, Play, and Purpose 

With recent advancements in virtual reality, game design, and other technologies, games have come a long way from the early days of Monopoly or Battleship. Join Dr. Nathan Prestopnik of Ithaca College to discuss how games and game technologies are being used to tell stories, teach students, and bring enjoyment in educational, corporate, and private contexts. Following the talk, join Dr. Prestopnik for a live demonstration of the Play|Write VR creative writing system, or challenge your friends at popular contemporary board games from the game library of Play the Game, Read the Story.
