Play the Game – The latest addition to the ECAWA Conference programme

We face a paradox – kids love computers and games, but aren’t interested in studying them. The reality is that they are using amazing technology every day without an awareness of how they work or what else they could be used for.  This presentation will expose game technology including the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, Playstation 3, iPhone and Sun’s Wonderland (open source equivalent of Second Life). See how games tech can be leverage to more thoughtful use of technology and be a step towards advanced computing concepts.

Presenters:
Valerie Maxville, Education Program Leader, iVEC
Dr Chris Hines, HPC Systems Administrator, iVEC
iVEC – the hub of advanced computing in Western Australia
