This one's for the technology-using educators out there. http://youtu.be/9Gpjcyl--KA?hd=1 is an introductory video explaining a bit about the system the kids and I are working with this year. We're in our sixth week of school. Engagement and motivation are off the charts. Kids are loving this!
Since posting the video, an epic conversation (200+ comments) had ensued on the Adobe Education Exchange…Continue
My name is Eric and I am working on my own game project. I find myself as someone who has some very cool ideas but lacks the skills to implement them myself. It's not like I can't learn them, it's just that I never realized I would need those kinds of skills...(programming, art, design)... I have to find people to help me do that but it's kind of frustrating you know? Just thought that I would open the floor for people like me to rant and connect with each other!
We are banning a lot of people for posting spammy links to live TV, ecommerce and what not. We are truly sorry if you have been exposed to those. In 3 days we have banned 300+ people. Spam in Gameful? NOT ON MY WATCH,…
Selfishness is the key to content creation in any social network. You are there to talk about yourself. Your prefrences. Your problems. Your projects. Your baby. Your lunch. Your favorite beer. Your favorite game. I'm creating this content so you can read it. In return, I expect feedback. Why?

I am a homeless man.
After reading Reality is Broken I began formulating a game called HoboKin, an ARG based on the experience of homelessness and poverty. So far I have designed 9 Achievements and about 35 quests, all designed to raise awareness of homeless and to create empathy with the impoverished. I believe the game has even more potential than that however.
What I do not know how to do is to create a website whereby people could communicate, post links to…Continue
In the last 5 months me and my two collaborateurs Niels Frederiksen and Giuseppe Franchi have developed a demo of a learning game as a master thesis project at ITU Copenhagen, Denmark.
We are trying to teach procedural literacy and introduce logic and basic programming concepts to kids from 10 years upwards by "stealth learning" in order to provide a good "preparation for future learning".
Check out our trailer:…Continue
Hello Gameful Peeps!
I'm looking for feedback/advice on my latest project.
I'm hosting a summit that's bringing together volunteers from the nonprofit and game communities to collaborate for a day toward designing a game that will address an issue one of the nonprofits facing. Stage two will be getting funding, building a small team, and turning the design into a real game.
It's going well so far. I have participants from PATH and Seattle Children's on the nonprof side,…Continue
I thought that I would write a blog post with some of the key ideas that I took away from watching Games for Change Festival conference sessions. If, like me, you weren't able to attend Games for Change in person, you can watch the sessions online here. I separately enjoyed this wrap up of Games for Health, which I wasn't able to attend or view online.
Some takeaways that I…Continue
I'm very excited about seeing all the awesome projects at the Games for Change Festival next week!
