I love the concept of using games to teach! Conspiracy Code is a game based high school history course that I am very excited about. You can read more about it on my blog. There is a video that shows how the game works, and how the students will learn from it, at 360Ed. Just click on Conspiracy Code and enjoy!

The use of interactive video games in the classroom will play a huge part in the technological advances taking place in today's classrooms. It is obvious the impact video games have on our students lives. We need to tap into this interest, add direction/content and use it to engage our students in active meaningful learning. Thomas Daccord discussion "online history games" talks about creating your own quiz games and other simple games as study guides for your students, I would like to take this to the next level. I think that interactive games such as this are that next step in harnessing this seemingly untapped technical resource.

As educators we are obligated to use every resource available. We have to be ever evolving in our teaching methods in an effort to make our subjects more relevant to our student’s everyday lives. As a young educator I hope to keep up with this technology and stay current with applications and studies that show its true potential. This way when it becomes the new big thing in education, I will already be comfortable and familiar with implementing it into my classroom.
