In my opinion, Agent Ninmah is truly doing something special. She’s collaborating with other teachers to create a curriculum and to teach EVOKE to students.
This month, several of us in the New York City Writing Project are introducing Evoke in our English, Art, and Technology classrooms. We are working together to become mentors for our students as they also play Evoke…
Our ultimate goal this semester is to look at other games, and to have students build prototypes of games, as well as mess around with some game building. (Oh, and we’ll be planting gardens and volunteering for City Harvest too!)
This is simply wonderful. Many of the agents here on the EVOKE network are working to create a better world for the future adults and leaders that will inherit this mess of ours; what better way to get a head start on that than to involve today’s students? The integration of game design is also a large added bonus. If you’ve been paying attention, a prominent designer has recently mentioned how games can change the world.
So, Agent Ninmah and all of the others that have collaborated on this wonderful EVOKE project—I commend and thank you. You’ve made the network and the world a much better place. You’re heroes!
