You know, I really love what I do, and it’s things like the Games in Education Symposium that give me the opportunities to meet the coolest people! Did you ever think of World of Warcraft as a social/professional networking tool? If not, you should. Let me introduce to you the guild, Cognitive Dissonance. The Cognitive Dissonance guild is not your typical World of Warcraft guild, rather, it’s a group of educators and video game researchers who play World of Warcraft together. Now, if you’re in education, and you’re looking for a very non-threatening and helpful environment in which to begin your journey into MMORPG’s, you need to check these guys out.
I’ve been a part of the guild for several months now, and the Games in Education Symposium has given us an excuse to have a guild meet-up. It’s not often that you get to hang out with some real innovators in education and play World of Warcraft in a hotel lobby.
