To address the impact that emerging media platforms have on how and with what children play, the MIT Education Arcade will present the 2010 Sandbox Summit, “iPlay, YouPlay, WiiPlay: How Play is Changing Media and Media is Changing Play,” on May 18 and 19 at MIT in Cambridge, MA.

Henry Jenkins, Provost’s Professor of Communication, Journalism, and Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California, will keynote the summit with “Toying with Transmedia, The Future of Entertainment is Child’s Play.” Other talks include “Inside Online Games: Why Kids Obsess Over Farmville and Other Lessons from the Field” and various workshops for attendees.
