On games and gender, gamification, and whether game design should be part of the humanities
>In this episode, Naomi Clark takes me to school on a few questions that emerged from episode 5. Is the “gamer” identity inclusive? Is gamification good for education? Is there purpose in gender-specific games? You might be surprised by some of her answers. Naomi Clark teaches at NYU’s Game Center, and has contributed to more than three dozen game titles. This episode is perfect if you’re already contemplating some of these issues, or even if you’re brand new to the conversation.
