A Q&A with Katie Salen, Executive Director Of The Institute Of Play

Join Fast Company's Anya Kamenetz for a live Q&A with the Executive Director of the Institute of Play on Friday, November 22nd at 12pm Eastern.

Katie Salen (right, pictured with Salman Khan) will answer your questions live on Friday, November 22nd at 12pm Eastern. Get your questions in now using the "Make a comment" box below!  

What do games have to teach us? Is it possible to run a whole school on the principle of play? What about testing--can a new generation of video games free our students from the drudgery of bubble tests? And for adults, how can the power of play unlock new collaborations, new achievements and new possibilities in our everyday lives? 

We'll talk about all this and more with Katie Salen, director of the nonprofit Institute of Play, and a Professor of Games and Digital Media at DePaul University. Salen will be joined by Fast Company's Anya Kamenetz.

In the meantime, be sure to check out this terrific conversation between Salen and Khan Academy's Salman Khan on how technology can take education beyond the classroom.
