Educational Games




TED and Games

Watch Theo Jansen: Freaky. Mind-blowing. But pay attention. What is life? Can you make something that lives out of PVC pipe? He does. Cyborg alert!  Wear your headphones.

When done check out the educational games and simulations. Can you find any other quality games?
Questions please answer on your blog (two posts):
1. Are the the Jansen creatures alive?  Why or why not?  This is a really hard question to answer--what is life?
2. Review each game in a 3-4 sentence paragraph.  What is the game, what is trying to teach you, and did it work?  Do games help learning?
