iPhone : "Students in my community need to understand how the world around them operates: the government, foreign affairs, etc." 12th grader, James Madison Memorial HS, WI #CivicsForUs #ECYF #Civics

TweetDeck : Since someone brought up their wish for World History games, my "white whale" is a Congress simulation game where students work together (or against each other) to function and get reelected.

TweetDeck : A3: It depends on the game... I often have my students look for key things within the game, and they we typically reflect/discuss aspects that relate to our objectives.
