G'day all,

I am Carlin, in my second year teaching secondary school math and science. New to the education game, but love it already but know where problems exist.. particularly with engagement.

I have only just found this MOOC and already been through the posted videos and content (Great work btw admins :)) and also still new to the whole edmodo site as well.

I am constantly trying to develop engaging Learning content and find the 3D RPG games to be the most effective with students. How I can convince a school to go ahead with game purchases like World of Warcraft will be a veyr interesting battle indeed. (If only we could modify the world of warcraft quests to be subject specific... one can dream)

Look forward to what the MOOC will bring :)

Hi Carlin,

Welcome! As far as WoW to be modifiable in game - well we're not there yet.
But there is a group of teachers at WoW in Schools who have developed curriculum

Members of the Cognitive Dissonance WoW Educators guild are also in the process of the development more quantitative based curriculum.

We talk alot more about this in week 2 - COTS and MMORPGs. We'll also see if anyone is willing to do a recon of portal for us and report back.

Hi glad to see you. We have quite a few from Australia, and when we did a global conference presentation on Second Life and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) I noticed a presence of educators from Australia.
