Educators, if you are interested in Games Based Learning have a look at the Games in Education Wiki. It has a comprehensive list of games sorted by subjects they would be suitable for.

That is a terrific resource, but I'm in such a critical mood today -- please forgive me! After Math, Science, and Literacy, the wiki seems to abandon this basic idea of sorting games by subject, and instead switches to sorting games by type. So then, for example, you have to read about all the Alternate Reality games in order to figure out if there's one related to your subject.

Grrrr....

Thanks for this. Again....I am amazed at how much is out there. It will take months to decipher the best options for my courses. I also like that it gives you ideas about how to create games.

This is just what I have been looking for....Thank you so much. Cannot wait to use Global Conflicts in my World Geo class. Now I just have to get permission, but I think I have that covered. Also, I am going to kill two birds with one stone - set something up so students "buy" time for playing the game.

Thanks for the resource! These serves as great exemplars for good educational game designs.

Save me a lot of time finding and bookmarking all the games by myself. ;)
