I love using Game Based Learning! It allows students to investigate, inquire, and most importantly for them to make mistakes! These opportunities help our students see that through the process of making mistakes and then correcting them in order to try again! Games allow our students to become immersed and engaged in our classrooms. It doesn't get much better then that! We need to teach our students about the thinking process as we teach our content. I hope that the resources I have developed help you to do the same.
I have spoken at a university conference on social studies regarding game based learning for the past three years. Published the CSI: Training Manual on the iBooks store.
