Can you puzzle your way past the Rage-Bots and help Professor Fizzwizzle set things right? He's counting on you!” Professor Fizzwizzle REVIEW: “This has got to be one of the best puzzle games I have played so far. At first the cartoon-like graphics got me, and I thought, that it's a somewhat easy, but at least a really cute game. Then I realized after just 50% of the regular levels, that it needs much more thinking, than it seemed first. The level sets are clever, the game is mixing the real hard ones with some relaxing easier ones, even in one level set. The Kids' levels are of course fairly easy, but I bet that some of them will make even them thinking about "what should I do here?". I *really* recommend this one, for the whole family. Nice graphics and brain-twisting gameplay, what else could be needed? :) “ IntroIntro. Pathfinders. History/Theory. Advocates. Activity Page. Games.

15 Revenge of the Logic Spiders “Revenge of the Logic Spiders helps students apply deeper levels of comprehension and logic to their schoolwork and to standardized and aptitude tests. The game is fun, challenging, and an effective independent learning program. Each activity sharpens reasoning and comprehension through multiple-choice word problems that become progressively more challenging. Each possible answer must be read and analyzed carefully. Only the correct inferences and deductions allow students to escape the hungry spiders.” Recognized as helping in test preparation Awards and Honors Download free demos IntroIntro. Pathfinders.

You have a checking account with a register, which will contain the money you earned as your new identity. Then you get to make choices, like the kind of house you’ll live in and what you’re going to eat, based on your identity. Every choice you make costs money, which will be deducted from the money in your checking account. The trick to the game is to see if you can make ends meet and still have some cash at the end.” A few of the other games offered: Consumer Jungle Easy Street Mathematics & Economics: Connections for Life IntroIntro.

19 Proof of Learning: Assessment in Serious GamesAssessment in Serious Games “Games and game technology are poised to transform the way we educate and train students at all levels. But these games and repurposed game technology, collectively called "serious games," have yet to be fully embraced by educators. It's not enough to declare that "games teach" and leave it at that. Teachers aren't going to hand out a game to a bunch of students and simply trust that the students have learned the material. Serious games, like every other tool of education, must be able to show that the necessary learning has occurred. Specifically, games that teach also need to be games that test..” Assessment in Serious Games Assessment in Serious Games Who is the user of serious games? “In Houston, Texas, a new hire steps onto a simulated offshore drilling platform and rehearses safety protocols. In Washington, D.C., a firefighter surveys a digital raging forest fire and chooses locations for trenches and firebreaks. A soldier in Iraq prepares for an upcoming mission using a detailed simulation of the urban battlefield. And a high school student in Portland, Oregon, manages the political campaign of Abe Lincoln as he tries to beat out Rudy Giuliani in the presidential elections of “ All these are users of serious games.
