Hey Everyone!

I am an instructional designer who is passionate about learning. In fact, I spend a lot of my free time learning from exceptional teachers across the globe. This learning does not take place in a classroom, school or university. I spend my free time learning in games, virtual worlds, the twitterverse and the blogsphere. This is where I learned about flow and fiero which I believe are absolutely necessary for games based learning.

I'll be one of the facilitators for the Games MOOC. I have seen deeper learning take place using games and simulations than any other format. I am truly interested in seeing how engagement and immersion can become part of the curriculum. For the past three years, along with the other course facilitators (LeeDale, Beth, Abacus, grasshopper98, and bpouillot) I have been using games and simulations to teach. We have taken students into Second Life, World of Warcraft, War Hammer, Metaplace, Forbidden City and numerous other games. We have also been managing an island and designing simulations in Second Life.

I've also been working with an unnamed guild of educators (bluebarker, Gridjumper, izzykaru, Abacus, Aevalle, Cat and Jerry Buchko) to offer open courses on P2PU ( A Virtual Worlds, Games & Education Tour; ARG Academy and MOOC - Machinima Online Open Course) and produce EduMachinima events.

I’m a gamer girl and I'm ready to get started - so shall we play a game?

Here's to all the educated people who don't hate games!

Alas Hawkye I am not sure I could keep up with you in that game, but we did have fun in Second Fleet and StarTrekOnline till we all found out it was more vaporware than software.

Hey Kae, great to be among you all. I am most grateful to have learned so much already from all of you.

I think it's mutual. Every couple of weeks, I consistently see a meme trending that I first heard about from you. And then, I have to say, "Jack was right....again!"

Kae, without you, I wouldn't be able to tweet, facebook, skype, slideshare, youtube, screen capture, flickr, diigo, and the list goes on. You are my mentor and have done very well I think, in teaching an old dog new tricks. I look forward to your leadership once again.
