The 11th Annual Games+Learning+Society Conference happening NOW in Madison is one of the premier videogames and learning events of the year. I wish I could attend in person to present my latest research and work on Gameful Elections 2015 and Games apps design for teens with special needs. Instead, this year I've e-participated online. My small e-contribution using Social Media tools is presented in the gallery above. In short:

Data show that ❤ #gls11 we are happy, Elevated, Excited, Active and Content
