“Video gaming is an important part of a great many children and youth’s social and learning experiences in and outside the classroom. While video games and gaming culture have much to recommend them, limited perceptions of gaming and in-game cultural representations also can help foster negative behaviors and harmful stereotypes around gender, race and culture. In this session we will discuss ways that parents, teachers, and other caregivers can positively engage youth in critical media consumption, content creation, and learning through games.”
