Gaming and Education: This is a hot area right now with lots of interesting questions: are kids actually learning anything when they play games? If so, what? Do games promote any kind of learning besides hand-eye coordination? We'll be playing games, including Food Force, and trying out some software packages in class this week to give you a chance to see what's out there. Meanwhile, outside of class, you'll be browsing through resources related to gaming.

Monday and Wednesday: Open Lab Days for you to try out various educational software packages and games; review one of the programs and post the review to your eportfolio. We'll have Food Force available during this open lab time. You may but do not have to submit scores to the discussion forum for this page. (5 points)
