For the curious…What will you be getting into when you attend this presentation on learning through ARG’s at Live Classroom 2.0?

Here are a few places to explore:

  1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Beast_(game)
  2. Google the following term “Sentient Machine Therapist”. Anyone want to venture a guess as to why I would have you search this term? Ever see the movie A.I.? I hope you watched the credits! Check out ALL of the links from here- Welcome to the “rabbit hole”. The rabbit hole to what you ask? Hmm… Read on and all will be illuminated.

Thanks Chris. I just attended the Classroom 2.0 Live session you presented on ARGs. It was fun and very fast paced. I surprised myself at how well I did with multi-tasking as you lead us through the game format. Since this is brand new to me, I’m glad I attended. I need to figure out how to use this with my fourth graders so I’ll be checking out the links provided.

Again thank you and happy gaming.

Yes. You can find it on Live Classroom 2.0 and I will also be linking to it from my blog. I just need a moment to make that happen.
