Jon Corripo is one of the masters of Gamifying education.  He does it without even trying.  He has an amazing book about games and students called Edu Protocols that I highly recommend everyone read.  He also is the Director of the Computer User Educators organization and one of the best people that I know. I hope you enjoy this wonderful interview about how you can easily place games into any educational setting.

Sorry for the lateness of this episode...like 2 weeks late.  I just started the school year back up so I needed time to focus on Work.  I'm back though and thrilled to share this episode of the podcast with all of you.  This is an interview with Ron Edwards game creator about creating safe spaces in the classroom to talk about difficult topics.  It's a more teen heavy podcast episode so I don't recommend it for little children.  However, if you work with teenagers and Role Playing this episode is fantastic and a must listen.  It wound up being an hour and a half episode so I cut out 30 minutes or so.  It also was recorded as a backup recording because the original recording didn't work so it will sound a little jolted.  Despite all these set back it seriously was one of my most interesting conversations and I hope you all enjoy.  Give a listen, and enjoy learning about how to make safe spaces for people to talk in games.

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.
