There are some innovative things going on in gaming. Thanks Kim, for this Facebook share. This is far and away the coolest thing happening in the gaming world. If school districts would invest in digital curriculum resource development the way these guys invest themselves in what they love (great literature and great gaming), education in the arts might be funded like math and science is funded. I know I’m not alone when I say there is way too much emphasis in math, science and technology education funding. This is the curriculum resource I need in my room. Who’s going to fund it for me? Tell you what. Give me a classroom full of computers that will fluidly run this game, site licences for this game on every machine, and I will change apathetic ideas, attitudes and behaviors prevalent in most children toward reading and writing. They could build background, and have freedom to create their own way.
