New to This site: Not sure who is with me on these things

I just kind of joined this page on a whim well researching for a speech im doing for class on how video games positively affect the real world but this isn't something im doing just for a grade...video games have really inspired me my whole life and i always wanted to be part of that process, but i never had the patients to learn programing. What i have always wanted to do though is be behind those first few steps of creating a video game.  I am currently a student at the University of…

I played SuperBetter and was inspired...

There looms a huge dark cloud of impending crisis in medical education today.  I think the following spells out one of the main reasons why doctors get easily stressed out, leading to poor communication with patients.  Too much information not well taught!!  There is too much information without the organization it deserves.  So when there is too much written information about something good it becomes boring EVEN when the subject matter is immensely interesting and important to people's…

TeemPlay - making a game to build a better world

Hey guys Becket here,

       did anyone else spend endless hours imagining the 'best game ever' growing up? Thinking to yourself "man, if I could build a game I would... insert awesome idea here."

Well my dream has always been to one day make that best game ever I always imagined. However, after working on this best game ever idea a few years I realized that my dream would never come true for a reason that I would like to share with all of you…

Gamified Curriculum Delivery System

This one's for the technology-using educators out there. http://youtu.be/9Gpjcyl--KA?hd=1 is an introductory video explaining a bit about the system the kids and I are working with this year. We're in our sixth week of school. Engagement and motivation are off the charts. Kids are loving this!

Since posting the video, an epic conversation (200+ comments) had ensued on the Adobe Education Exchange…

Any unskilled innovator's out there?

Hi! 

My name is Eric and I am working on my own game project. I find myself as someone who has some very cool ideas but lacks the skills to implement them myself. It's not like I can't learn them, it's just that I never realized I would need those kinds of skills...(programming, art, design)... I have to find people to help me do that but it's kind of frustrating you know? Just thought that I would open the floor for people like me to rant and connect with each other!
