My name is Silvrost (Rita Friberg) and I am not a gamer, but I have a couple of friends who are trying to turn me into one:) I love board games, but only play Solitaire, Mah Jong and Bejeweled on the computer...so I have a ton to learn. I am trying to learn WoW now, but so far I have been dead more than alive and I have only made it to level 4 so far. I have used games in my classroom (Scruples and Monopoly) for business topics. I also encourage my students to build games and my favorites have been Who Moved My Cheese and Teamology so far.
I teach Business, Management, Marketing, and Human Resources at a Colorado Community College and started teaching online a few years ago. I really love teaching online...more than I ever dreamed I would. I have incorporated a simulation in a couple of classes and had mixed results.
I would love to learn more about integrating gaming into the classroom and more about games.
