As school starts for most, I'm wondering about the use of online, interactive games for exploring History and learning about great people from the past.
When Flash was introduced, we thought this was the answer to the dreadfully boring and uninformative history text, the literature dryly delivered by Mr. J. Evans Prichard. And we saw a lot of promising interactive games early on.
So, do you use them? Do you find them educational? Do you find them at all?
We started a list: Games That Teach History
, and have collected more of and about web games for history
. Can you or your students find more? What do you think of the ones there?
