Nerd and Geek Culture in High Schools: Graphic Novels, Gamification, and Gamer's Guilds

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Nerd and geek culture has come into the mainstream. Most people accept it, and many who were previously uncomfortable with their nerdy tendencies are not ashamed any more. With this wide acceptance, we are now able to objectively study the practical values of nerd culture. Caitlyn Zaksheske (Eisner Graphic Novel Growth Grant 2015 winner, head librarian, Yuma High School), Matthew Zaksheske (psychology and sociology teacher, Gila Ridge High School), Neil Peters (English teacher, Cibola High School), and moderator John Shableski (VP of sales, UDON Entertainment/special projects; Will & Ann Family Eisner Foundation) discuss how the field of education can apply the values of nerd and geek culture to aid not only in the classroom but in the library and in extracurricular activities.
