First classroom guide is now available!

As promised in a previous post, I've been working on developing some classroom guides to help teachers and parents jump-start their thinking about how they can get the most out of using video games as learning tools. The first of those guides is now available!

This guide covers great little game called The Great Flu. For a history of medicine junkie like myself, starting with this game was a no-brainer.  Also, the fact that it's freely available means that virtually anyone can play the game and use the guide to learn a little something about global health and epidemiology.  And really, who doesn't want to know more about those things?!

From now on, the classroom guides will be accessible through the new "Classroom Guides" tab at the top of the page. And as always, comments and suggestions about how to make these guides more useful are always welcome. What are you waiting for? Go check it out!
