*October 7-10, 2010*

*Limited registration slots available!*

This conference brings together leading researchers and practitioners
representing developmental and cognitive psychology, communications, media,
and game design to examine how learning transfers from video game play to
the elementary and secondary school classroom.

 Invited conference attendees’ talks and activities will address:

·         cognitive skills and content knowledge that children and
adolescents acquire and refine during video game play;

·         game features that captivate and promote skill development among
game players; and

·         evidence of skill and content knowledge transfer from video game
play to the classroom context among game players of different ages.

We are now making room for a small number of places in the audience in
addition to the invited participants. This audience will take part in
conference activities. The fee for the 3 and a half day conference including
lunch and continental breakfast is $250.  Registration information and the
conference agenda is now available at www.fordham.edu/screen-to-screen. For
