    One Comment to A VerySpatial Podcast – Episode 326

    1. Just listened to the podcast and here’s my two cents:

      I’ve given at least a dozen workshops to educators on using Google Maps and Google Earth and what I’m enabling them to do is teach their students by playing a game. The subject might be the silk road, or the charles w morgan whaling ship, but in the end the activities generally share the same trait. Navigating from place to place after completing specific tasks or goals. However, I never use the word “game” in any of my presentations. This is not intentional, but what I have the educators do during my workshops is play. Play with the interface, play with concepts, and play with each other.

      Anywho… I support your efforts in making Gaming one of the ascendant fields in our discipline!
