Anna Arici,  Playable Fiction-Quest Atlantis, Indiana University, USA 

PhD Cognitive Scientist & Serious Games Designer - Expert in Social network domain. Quest Atlantis project on social network and e-learning through 3d real time games. Dr. Arici's work involves the design and research of a game-based learning environment for pre-service and in-service teachers. These game environments provide immersive experiences for teachers to explore learning theory, play out different roles and scenarios with virtual students, see the consequences of their choices via game trajectories, and provide a place for teachers to upload and watch clips of their classroom practices for reflection and interaction with other game colleagues.  Dr. Arici's research demonstrates the value of game platforms for both learning and motivation, while illuminating the importance of interaction, context, and agency in the process. Dr. Arici is also working in collaboration with the Teach for America program to build a similar system that will support these teachers in their teacher training and throughout their two-year placement.
