Jason Della Rocca listens to audience questions during his talk at WSSF.

TAG board member Jason Della Rocca gave a talk about the possibilities of “games for change” and how Canadians might develop these in Canada. The lively discussion with audience members included the significance of participation both in the creation and use of these games, and the value of social science approaches to iteratively developing these games. TAG post-doctoral researcher Jen Whitson’s ethnographic work with industry partners such as Funcom was discussed.
