On Episode #5 of EdGamer we discuss three websites that caught our attention this week. We take a look at the new release of Sims Medieval from EA games and debate the possible educational uses for the program. Then we take some time to discuss a teacher from New York who is currently using the game Minecraft to help educate his elementary students. Finally we introduce and discuss an illustrated video to the sound clip of a presentation from Sir Ken Robinson. This intriguing speech gives an overview of the current climate and changing philosophies of our (U.S.) educational system and we will tie it back to gaming and education.
