EdGamer 126: How Gamifi-ED Empowers Students
This week on EdGamer 126 we bring back one of our favorite features of the show: new guests! Vicki Davis, Lee Graham and Colin Osterhout of the thriving new gaming and learning initiative Gamifi-ED. (We will be bringing Verena Roberts of Gamifi-ED on EdGamer in the near future) Listen in as we pick their brains about their wiki, personal views on education and some of their favorite games. Tune-in and level-up!
Hangouts On Air with Niilo – Focus – as always – on educational use of information technology

What is a serious game? Is there such a thing as a non-serious game?
What are examples of serious games?
How can serious games be evaluated? (Done with higher ed research and input)
Evaluate the serious games that have been discovered and create recommendations and opinions on the usefulness and value of the games for improving the world and the lives of those who play them.
Prepare a presentation to share the findings and create a public wiki sharing the findings.
