Stop Disasters (Via J.D. Williams.) Mr. Williams points to a serious game I hadn’t seen yet. It looks cool enough that I almost started playing just now… until I realized I was procrastinating on my writing. In any case, Stop Disasters! aims to educate students (aged 9-16.. or anyone) about how to prepare for (and prevent loss of life during) natural disasters, such as Tsunamis, wildfires, earthquakes, and hurricanes. These are timely topics and I’d love the chance to play this with students myself. Please let me know if you try it, especially with students.
Ok… procrastination over.
