Adapting Game Design Strategies to Increase Youth Participation in Equitable Learning Opportunities
Nichole Pinkard

Nichole Pinkard is an Associate Professor and Chair of the School of Design in the College of Computing and Digital Media at DePaul University in Chicago. She is the founder of Digital Youth Network, co-founder of Inquirium LLC and Remix Learning LLC, home of iRemix, a social learning platform that connects youth’s learning opportunities in school, home, and beyond.

In collaboration with the Chicago Public Library, Dr. Pinkard helped establish YOUmedia, a public learning space that immerses high school students in a context of traditional media—books—to make and produce new media artifacts like music, games, videos, and virtual worlds.

Dr. Pinkard is the recipient of a 2014 Northwestern Alumni Award, a 2010 Common Sense Media Award for Outstanding Commitment to Creativity and Youth, and the 2004 the Jan Hawkins Award for Early Career Contributions to Humanistic Research and Scholarship in Learning Technologies, an NSF Early CAREER Fellowship. She holds a B.S. in Computer Science from Stanford University, an M.S. in Computer Science and a Ph.D. in Learning Sciences from Northwestern University.

Her current scholarly interests include the creation of city-wide learning ecologies, design and use of pedagogical-based social networks, new media literacy learning environments, ecological models of learning, digital badging, computational-making learning environments for underrepresented groups, and designing city-level learning ecologies.
