Izzie Colpitts-Campbell of Dames Making Games in Toronto will explain how video games represent a new medium: that is rules-based media. They are not just a recombination of existing media (print, audio, video). The rules structure communicates a view of reality. She will describe how groups like Dames Making Games enable amateurs and ordinary citizens to gain media literacy skills in gaming in a collaborative environment, and to learn to express themselves in this (relatively) new medium.
