     (or for the full announcement)

Below, for example, are a few of the questions that are being asked during the

Q - "What's the difference between a video game, a
      learning game, and virtual world?"

Q -  "Is the term 'game' really something we should be
       using? Does 'game' convey something specific, and
       potentially negative, to educators?"

Q - "Is there any proof that video games can be useful
      as learning tools? Are there any credible studies,
      or are we just assuming they can be useful for education?"?
