Games and the Government: Federal Games Meetup

The Federal Games Guild is an informal community of practice of federal agencies who are interested in application of games, from research to educational technology. Connecting at SXSW Edu, this meetup will start with a speed dating style (brief 1-2 minute introduction) of past and present practices in serious games from government agencies, followed by round table discussions around key themes, such as funding opportunities, case examples, and the growth in gaming pedagogy practices.
