Dork Short: Submrge: Deeper Thinking About Games in Education

Submrge.org encourages teachers to use/discuss games in their classroom by giving them information that details the specific educational values of games as they are released. Although specifically tailored to K12, the project is founded upon the work of THATCampers who’ve done extensive work using games “as text” in educational settings.
This project is a collaboration between HistoriQuest LLC and Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. The project has just received a second round of funding from the Ludus Project’s Games and Learning Initiative.

HistoriQuest LLC is also presently building an augmented reality application for mobile devices for a Civil War era archaeological site managed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, State Parks and Historic Sites at Magnolia Spring State Park, and is working on location-based applications for Google Glass.
