For anyone interested in game-based learning, Gameful has a new webinar series with some excellent presentations about GBL concepts and projects: http://gameful.org/gameful-webinar-series.

To Wendy and any educators interested in learning more about Minecraft, some faculty at Temple University have setup a Minecraft server (server name = dig.temple.edu) for educators to join in order to play and discuss ideas together. If you're interested, please email Matthew Palladinetti at matt@temple.edu with your Minecraft username to join the group.

I have a small group of Minecraft enthusiasts in my classroom. We started a video game creator's club last winter and used KUDO to experiment with. I'd love to learn more about using such creative tools in my classes.

Love Jane McGonigal!  I agree with her that we learn and develop valuable skills while playing games that transfer over to our "real" lives.

Joining this group is long overdue! I am currently working on introducing game-based learning via the iPod Touch and iPad into our district schools and my big project, the WoWinSchool Project, aims to integrate the popular MMORPG, World of Warcraft into a middle school language arts curriculum.

I should mention that I founded and run the Kindersite Project http://www.kindersite.org that is used globally as a resource for the introduction to technology and early English.

The Kindersite resource consists of games, songs and stories.

I'm starting to use several game creation softwares that the kids really love in the K-6 classes: I'm introducing 2DIY to the younger kids and Scratch to my year 5/6 groups.

I work with middle schoolers, but am interested in any applications of video games and curricula.
