Learning Civics through games

I thought is an interesting way to learn through games especially when it is about civics.  I think that this form of interaction is a good way to engage learners on topics that would otherwise sound boring. I think the richness of the content would really help in encoding, just by simple simulation and interaction the key points of the lesson does get across effectively.

  1. Thanks for this resource Joel, I really like it.

  2. Wow! That is awesome. I have frequently thought about becoming a History or government teacher when I retired from the CG and I can only imagine how many apps like this would be available by then! Super cool!

  3. I think learning through gaming is such a great idea. It grabs students attention, keeps them entertained, and helps them learn all at the same time! Especially with topics that can be confusing or boring for some, using a game to hold that attetion will really help the students actually be able to learn rather than fall asleep at their desk.

  4. Yes i as surprised by this find and i would definitely think about bring some of these ideas back to my work.
