Halo 3 launch musings - games for school and a contest!

Hi Classroom 2.0'rs-
For your Friday persusal, I offer you my latest blog musing:

Halo 3 shines harsh light on games in education

Did you know:
  • In one week, more people will purchase a copy of Halo 3 than there are teachers in the United States.
  • Every public school in the U.S. would have to purchase 100 copies of a game to match the sales of Halo 3
  • There will be one Halo 3 game purchased for every 5 students, or about 3 games per class (US kindergarten to high school.)
Whether you love the idea of games in schools, or think it's a crazy idea, there are some market realities that influence game designers that might surprise you.

Extra bonus: at the end of the post, there is an announcment about a new MacArthur Foundation competition you might find worth your time!

Enjoy the weekend-
Sylvia
