  2. The public sector is increasingly embracing computer and video games to further key administration priorities; especially in the areas of learning, health and civic participation. Despite the fact that hundred of games are being funded across multiple government agencies, there is no central repository of resources and best practices on designing, developing and publishing impact-focused games. We have a Corporation for Public Broadcasting and National Public Radio - is there now a need for a National Public Games initiative? This panel will explore the need, challenges and potential structure for such an initiative. Panelists include Kumar Garg, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Bill Siemering, President of Developing Radio Partners; Founding member of National Public Radio Board of DIrectors, Sara DeWitt, Senior Director, PBS KIDS Interactive, and Laird Malamed, SVP of Production, Guitar Hero. Moderated by Alan Gershenfeld; Chairman, Games for Change; Founder and President E-Line Media and former SVP, Activision Studios.
