Welcome to the inaugural episode of Games and Education.  In this first episode, I speak with Ben Robbins the creator of Microscope.  Microscope is the Timeline and Role Playing Game that I have used many times in both History and Language Arts classes.  It's a fascinating dive into how the game works, how teachers can improve its implementations in the classroom.  I don't want to ruin it but it's amazing what we can learn by letting students listen to each other more while others are speaking.
