EdGamer is one of my favorite podcasts. The host, Zack Gilbert, and show contributor, Gerry James, are teachers who play games and use games in the classroom. They have interviewed some of the leading researchers, practitioners, and experts on educational gaming (Dr. James Paul Gee, Dr. Jeremiah McCall, Dr. Lucas Gillispie, Dr. Crystle Martin, Sylvia Martinez, Joel Levin, and Jeff Holmes). This is a great podcast for teachers, parents, and researchers. In the future, I plan to post and discuss their conversations here on Gaming and education. On EdGamer #83, The guys discuss Mashable’s Top 10 Video Games of 2012 and they discus which games teachers may use – and which games they should definitely not use in the classroom. They also give a shout out to yours truly! Thanks guys! I love what you are doing – keep up the good work!
