Games for Educators

Games for Educators is a cool site to show teachers how to integrate tabletop games into the classroom. I’ve been giving a lot of thought to the convergence of education and games lately. Dr. Jim Gee at the University of Wisconsin has a lot to say about how this works with video games, but it’s great to see some low-tech, lower-cost tools like this and GAMA’s Games in Education program too.

  1. I’ll check out the site!
    I use Call of Cthulhu Quick Start rules and “The Haunting” adventure when I teach my Lovecraft Unit (“Dagon,” “The Music of Eric Zahn,” “The Call of Cthulhu”).
    I have students create the characters and write a background. Then they are to create a short story based on the adventure from any number of perspectives (newsreport, 1st person, journal/diary, etc.). Had some truly excellent results last year!
