ED Games Expo 2019: A Showcase for Education Learning Games and TechnologiesWashington
Game-based learning is gaining popularity as more young people and adults learn from games, both in and out of the classroom. Well-designed games can motivate learners to actively engage in challenging tasks, master content, and sharpen critical thinking and problem solving skills.

See these technologies in action at the 6th annual ED Games Expo, a free showcase for the field of educational learning games, as well for other innovative forms of learning and assistive technologies. This year's expo will be held on January 7 & 8, 2019 and attendees will have the opportunity to demo more than 100 learning games and technologies, while meeting face-to-face with the developers. The learning games and technologies are for students ages 5–18, and cover a range of topics in education and special education across STEM, reading and writing, social studies, and social and behavioral development.

More than half of the games and technologies at the Expo were developed with the support of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) programs at the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences (IES), the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Department of Agriculture. Others were developed through ED research programs at IES, the Office of Special Education Programs, the Office of Innovation and Improvement, and the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education, and through programs at the Smithsonian, Library of Congress, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Endowment for the Arts, Environmental Protection Agency, USAID, and the Wilson Center.
