About this event

" Intelligent Gaming Matters"
Creativity Matters - Why Creativity Matters... An Exploration in Gaming

- Creativity matters because it is an essential element of self-directed lifelong learning.

- Creativity matters because it enables us to adapt to rapidly changing economic, civic and cultural circumstances.

- Creativity Matters because it is vital for high-value work and for competitiveness of our economy.

- Creativity Matters to innovate and engage; to generate a shift in thinking and behavior and to share ideas worth spreading that change attitudes, lives and ultimately the world for the better.

This Event draws together 3+ live presenters - unique passionate individuals from various backgrounds involved in gaming. In keeping with our 2012 theme "Creativity Matters“ we explore ways in which technology and our behavior has adapted to play and how imagination and innovation are economic boosters in this realm. We share a few recorded TEDtalks and engage in open and lively conversation around creativity and gaming. Come prepared to engage. Dialogue is an important and essential element of the TEDxSarasotaSalon.
