Yes, I've been trying to log in an have been unsuccessful for some reason. I left a voice mail message and also emailed the UConn people. I hope someone can help me soon. I'm anxious to get started. Thanks!
Thank you very much. Mind you, I have no real idea what this whole thing is about. But I hopefully plan to contribute something, even though I don't have a great deal of educational experience (I'm still in high school).
Hi Roger, I'm sure we crossed paths in Cambridge, where I worked at the Berkman Center as a Fellow but hung around quite a bit at MIT-Singapore GAMBIT. My profile in the game world has dropped considerably since I left for DC in May, but I'm still deeply interested in the intersection of video games and moral learning / civic engagement. I left behind a MacArthur-funded DML project that I hope is doing well, and I've a chapter on games and moral learning coming out soon.
Thanks for the warm welcome, and I hope to be a productive member of this community!
Thank you for creating this website and finally giving well needed attention to the positive connection between gaming and education.
I am currently working on developing a course (grad study work) where German proficiency is increased in a live interactive roleplaying environment using Alexander von Humboldt's journey to the New World as the foundation for the game. I feel exceedingly lucky to have found your work and research!
Thanks for the welcome, Roger! While I'm apparently missing that vital gaming gene common to so many of my fellow Information Technology faculty members, I am interested in the ethics of it all and how gaming technology impacts society and I'm intrigued at the possibilities of gaming for educational purposes.
Of course! I'm honored to be included in the Xbox Community Playdate you have organized for next month. I thought it would be only appropriate to hop on over from the SG mother-site and join up. I look forward to interacting in discussion here.
I am interested in exciting, fun, cognitive games that REALLY align to state mathematics standards without the students knowing. I'm so busy - new superintendent, efficiency study cuts, budget issues - but really want to connect with folks on this.
Three things to share:
1) Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Changing the Game work:
2) Video games and Tournaments with Tabula Digita Dimension M:
3) Plutopia and a show next year called the 'Future of Play' that will connect to education:
