This year we have two awesome keynote speakers.

Doug is very well known in K12 education and library communities as a leader, author, and all around awesome guy. Most of what you need to know is wrapped into the “My Biases” section of his website.

On Friday we’ll be joined by Dr. Richard Halverson, an Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Education, where he co-founded the Games Learning and Society (GLS) research group.
