U.S. hosts education games expo to boost innovation in educational technologies

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- A livestreamed exhibition held by the U.S. Department of Education was launched on Thursday, showcasing cutting-edge educational technologies and captivating games.

The full-day virtual event was broadcast live from an annual Education Games Expo (ED Games Expo) held this week in Washington, D.C.

Education experts shared their classroom technologies and how they used art and design in creating them. They brainstormed on how to leverage the immersive nature of games to foster a deep understanding of scientific principles and learn how to successfully incorporate new technology into the classroom to teach students up-to-date skills.

One of the panels shared stories of four female entrepreneurs who invented education technologies to engage girls and underrepresented students in science, technology, engineering, and math.

The event was a highlight of the annual ED Games Expo held in Washington, D.C., from Sept. 19 to 22.
