Ottway Ducard stashed this in games
Stashed in: Education!
Right now, effective and engaging games that assist learning do not exist. I'd like to see educational games activate students' communication and planning skills (like Day of Defeat did with my students) and give students information relevant to their grade-level content standards. I applied for and received access to the Teach with Portals beta. I can't wait to get to school and see if I can use it to engage my students.
the future could be more Ender's Game like...minus the whole military command aspect...but games are the actual education then games are the actual action
