The game-based learning wiki for educational games is located at: https://carmenwiki.osu.edu/display/gamingeducation/Home or http://go.osu.edu/games
When you login, please add content to the wiki, rearrange things, or create a better system of organization. This is a community resource intended to help OSU develop resources for making and using games in the classroom as well as assigning students the task of making games.
Each month, I add the latest topics to the wiki for the game-based learning brown bags. For instance, this month, Jeremiah McCall will be presenting Gaming the Past: Simulation Games in History which is about how he uses games in the classroom. His talk will be at 11:30 in 168 Dulles. Please register for this talk on the DU website: https://registration.it.ohio-state.edu/node/241
This fall we will be meeting on Mondays and, except for October, the meetings will be at the DU (370 Science and Engineering Library) at noon.
I have also posted an announcement about a conference at MSU in October called Meaningful Play 2010: Designing and Studying Games that Matter. I’ll write a blog and post some information from this conference in the wiki after I attend. I encourage you to write about what you are learning about games in the wiki as well.
The topics are grouped as “children” in the wiki and are located at the bottom of the home page. In this space you can add “children.” Simply click on a topic and add content to any given area. One group formed a working group this summer to discuss making games. I can create one of these for anyone who is interested. It is a secure space where only those in the working group can access the information.
This is a good place to share links to websites and articles and have a dialog. I also invite interested people to write blog articles for the DU blog or link to one’s own blog about game-based learning topics.
I welcome comments and ideas about how to better use the wiki and invite you to make some changes or additions!
