Speakers so far (more tbc):
Martin Saunders, CEO of Zammer. Zammer is a games-based revision platform (motto: slam your exam!). It was the winner of the 2013 Facebook / Gates Foundation HackEd 2.0 London EdTech hackathon.
Ruthine Burton, programmer, artist and teacher, on Sprogglers. Sprogglers is an online games world for children that makes learning fun. Think Moshi Monsters with a Tamagotchi element: kids can buy, sell, dress up, care for, play with and breed baby sprogs (creatures). The learning element: Children play educational mini-games with their sprogs.
Patrick Feeney and George Bray from R3D Pixel on 'English Run'. English Run is a multiple-choice driller with potential for use in test prep, 2nd language acquisition and as a customisable classroom tool. The iOS version gets fed through a Google doc so teachers can write questions for the game and update the game's content live within seconds. Patrick and George will be travelling from Brussels for the evening, so we'll be giving them an extra warm welcome!
