Play Every Day – September 14-16, 2020

Play Every Day was  the largest virtual event of the mEducation Alliance Virtual Symposia series on Play and Technology for Lifelong Learning.  We are delighted to attract 782 registrants to hear from an amazing line-up of 80+ presenters from more than 25 countries highlighting a range of tech and non-tech play-based interventions for formal and non-formal educational settings.  Presenters were competitively selected from both our Symposia and COVID-19 EdTech idea pitch call submissions, many of whom touched on the need for and contributions of play and games in the EdTech response to worldwide COVID-19 school closures.

As with our traditional in-person symposia, presenters and participants benefited from a variety of innovative knowledge exchange formats  (e.g. keynote and show case presenters, expos, demonstrations, and gallery walks) and lots of fun game play and other networking opportunities including engaging in a virtual escape room experience and enjoying a math-focused concert.

The Alliance launched its first of a signature activities, Math Attacks!, at Play Every Day. Please click here to find out more about this initiative, including its crowdfunding campaign for incentive prizes for app developers.
