This is the proposed site for a video games in education wiki. The intended audience of this page is k12 educators interested in getting started with games in education, though I hope experts in the field will contribute content and use this as a reference resource as well. I will get up a framework for the navigation and content as soon as I can. Feel free to contribute thoughts and discussion in the meantime.


Quick Links


The following links are meant to accompany my presentations on Video Games in Education. These can be used to explore topics more in depth following a presentation, or (if the participants have their own computers) to make the presentation more of a hands-on activity.
