Educators, scholars, and other stakeholders are implementing games with increasing frequency in a variety of learning contexts. Each of these contexts has unique affordances and constraints. Navigating and mastering any game-based implementation requires intensive planning, iterative problem solving, and willingness to compromise. This Panel brings together educators and scholars with experience implementing games in a variety of different contexts: in underserved high schools, classrooms on a limited budget, libraries, museums, and a week-long games camp. Each Panelist will describe a unique game-based implementation that they oversaw—addressing what worked, what was surprising, and lessons learned from failures. We invite audience members to seek answers to questions they have about designing, adapting, and optimizing their own game-based implementations.
