The first annual fair of the JamToday network took place in Unioncamere Piemonte & Neth-ER in Brussels on February 11. It brought together about 80 different people from different sectors and (new) partners of the network interested in creating game-based solutions for challenging problems. The day was a mix of talks, workshops on setting up and running your own game jam and demonstrations of some of the games created in the last round of game jams organised by JamToday partners. Sally Reynolds gave a talk as part of the programme on the type of issues faced by game producers when creating games to be used in classrooms, where she drew on experiences of introducing teachers to games made during JamToday game jams which aim to teach students how to programme.
