Hi Reid,

Yes, I'm working on the schedule revamp now. During the 
lunch hour we'll have the "accessibility arcade" -- two of 
my students are coming and will help out with the set up and 
running of that. The plan right now is for them to help set 
up a "mini arcade" for the roundtables so that people can 
interact with a couple games while we talk about what makes 
a game accessible.

In addition we'll also have demos throughout the day -- 
the "put on a blindfold" and try to play this visually 
intensive game things we discussed and my students can help 
out with those demos -- they will basically be our "stage 
hands" and make sure the tech stuff runs more smoothly.
