Collaboration is Key
Wednesday, 9 - 9:30 am
Room 502B

Collaboration is a key issue in creating a climate for learning and invention using new technologies. The Cleveland Institute of Art has created the Professional Partnership Program (PPP), which allows us to stimulate the right challenge in an academic settings. One of the most satisfying results of the PPP has been an exciting collaboration between students and partners in the fields of gaming and simulations.

In order to educate students for future challenges and complex tasks, education is moving beyond the traditional classroom setting. Educational games and simulations, like Dig-In, can be used in innovative ways to help students acquire a different kind of knowledge.

This form illustrates how collaborations among profit, nonprofit, and educational organizations can improve student learning about Egyptian Art. It provides an overview of the technology used in Dig-In and summarizes the collaborative challenges of producing innovative simulations.
