Let’s Learn from Prof. Scot Osterweil
Kummara and ITB invited Professor Scot Osterweil, Creative Director from MIT Education Arcade to Indonesia to bring awareness that game has a lot of potential. Game can be used not only for entertainment/commercial matters but also for education.
Last Monday, 17 November 2014, Studium Generale and Workshops about “Learning Process through Game & Play” was held in ITB. Organized by Segitiga.Net and @america, in 18 November 2014, Professor Scot Osterweil and our CEO, Eko Nugroho, shared about “Integrating Education and Game Creation” @america.
Professor Scot Osterweil still have some agenda in Bandung that we can attend. In Friday, 21 November 2014 he will give a Studium Generale in Padjadjaran University, Jatinangor. In the next day, Saturday, 22 November 2014, we can learn about Game Based Learning in Grapari Digilife Dago, Bandung. This event open for public, specially for teachers and its community. At last, Professor Scot Osterweil will become Keynote Speaker in Indonesia Digital Media Festival on 24 November 2014, that will be held in ITB.
Having Professor Scot Osterweil in Indonesia is a great opportunity for us to learn more about game and its potential. Kummara believe, if we can create better game and optimize the potential of game, we can bring new color of Indonesia’s games.
