MindLabs & Dept of Ed: EdGames Expo ’21

Amanda Thompson About, Video

The ED Games Expo is the Department of Education’s (ED) annual public showcase and celebration of game-changing innovations in education technology that were developed through more than 30 programs at ED and across the Federal government. From 2013 to 2020 the Expo was been held at locations across Washington, DC, including the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts between 2018 and 2020. In 2021, the 8th Annual ED Games Expo was held as an all-virtual event. Click here for a recap and to access videos of all participating learning games and technologies and events.

At the ED Game Expo, attendees can discover and demo more than 100 different education learning games, learning technologies, platforms that present data-driven information to educators and administrators, and technology-delivered interventions while at the same time meeting face-to-face with the developers.

The education technologies at the Expo cover content across topics such as early learning, STEM, reading, social studies, English learning, healthy development, career and technical education, special education, and educator professional development. Education technologies also present data driven information to educators and administrators to inform decision making. In addition to being a showcase of education technologies that attendees can demo, each year participating government programs host “showcase events” during the week of the Expo to highlight and build capacity for initiatives across a range of important topics in education. In 2021, the ED Games Expo presented 35 different events. Recordings of these events can be access on the ED Games Expo Event Playlist Page.
