The WID community gathers daily at 3 p.m. to take a break, caffeinate and converse. Buzz Tea @ 3 is a monthly series that gathers perspectives on different topics focused on ideas and research. The institute’s Twitter followers can also chime in by replying to @WIDiscovery, posting on its Facebook page or emailing us. With the Games+Learning+Society annual conference around the corner June 12-14, 2013, our minds are on gaming and how it influences our lives. Let us know what gaming has taught you!
