What do you hope to get out of this meetup?

I want to meet other educators and designers who are interested in pioneering a new age in game-based learning. I want to help foster a community of like-minded professionals who can share best practices, form new partnerships, have fun, and make a difference.

How did you find us?

I couldn't find us, so I started us!

What is your day job? (Plz specify which functional area best describes you: teacher, administrator, counselor, game designer, developer, artist, biz dev, operations, marketing, entrepreneurship, executive, research, writing, finance, UI/UX, sound)

I am currently the High School Specialist at Democracy Prep Public Schools.

I'm a professional educator, game designer and social entrepreneur. I have worked in schools since 2006 as a teacher, coach and consultant. In 2011 I founded an ed games company, and in 2013 founded this meetup to help build NYC's ed game community.

What Joe B. is saying about this Meetup Group

I'm really glad that our group is growing so fast, and has so many great people! I look forward to planning more events to help the GBLNYC community continue to grow and deepen.
