The 2022 Game-Based Learning Summit

Join Us Next Time

About The Conference

The Game-Based Learning Summit is a two-day event that brings together gaming professionals and educational leaders to network, learn, and discuss the future of gaming in education.

By sharing industry trends, emerging technologies, best practices, research, case studies, and implementation strategies, the GBL Summit will help educational leaders make informed curriculum decisions for their schools and students, and gaming professionals better understand the educational market.

No Risk, No Reward

The Intersection of Games and Education

Why do students love games, but sometimes drag their feet going into class?

Games consistently provide opportunities and experiences that are not regularly available in every classroom

Join game-based learning trailblazers for a critical conversation surrounding how to optimize gaming in education.  Key topics will be discussed, such as blended learning, after-school enrichment, learning loss, social-emotional learning, and personalized learning, within the lens of game-based learning.

Through hands-on workshops, breakout sessions, panel discussions, and keynote speakers, you will have the opportunity to: 

Learn best practices from those who have implemented game-based learning

Explore available game-based learning options and the future of gaming

Discover how to help develop the game developers of the future

Discuss current trends in K-12 eSports

Ever wonder how your classroom could be as fun as playing games?

Whether your goal is to contribute expertise in game-based learning, learn from your peers and adopt new practices, or connect with like-minded professionals, register today for the 2022 Game-Based Learning Summit!

About Baltimore

One of the many gems of Baltimore City is the Harbor East district, known as the city’s newest neighborhood.

Where industrial warehouses once stood, you’ll now find dozens of restaurants, from quick bites to fine dining, and a wide variety of shopping options, from high-end to local boutiques.  Best of all, you will be steps away from the nationally renowned National Aquarium!


The Baltimore Marriott Waterfront has arranged a heavily discounted rate to host GBL attendees on site. Rooms are $139* per night and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Book your room online or call (877) 212-5752  to make your reservation today. Reference the Game-Based Learning Summit when booking your room.

* Room rate does not include state tax and occupancy fees, currently at 15.5%.
