Games and Interactivity in Computer Science Education

Panel
Wednesday, 2 August, 9:30 - 10:30 am
Room 157

Interactive computer graphics and games are powerful tools that can be used in the educational process. In fact, both interactive and game tools are growing in importance in computer science learning, since they are useful in many of the typical topics included in the curriculum: linear algebra, artificial intelligence, computer graphics, networks, real-time simulations, human-computer interaction, and software engineering, among others. The main goal of this panel is to discuss and present solutions and educational tools that are being used or developed by professors, researchers, and companies, based on game and/or interactive technologies. The presenters show examples from their own experience and survey programs and tools used at various institutions around the world.
