    Yes, standing ovation for Jane and her team behind the scenes, the first game of it’s type and successful so likely to set a trend. Well done!

    Can’t wait for next season and will need to book some time in, because, as I found out learning to be a social innovator is hard work.

    The sooner you can announce a start date the better it will be for me to plan ahead. Thanks.

    PS if you’re a monster at http://www.gameful.org please join the Urgent Evoke Monsters group, the network is stirring.

    Cherry, Buffy…anyone. How can I incorporate this into education? I teach Business and Technology classes at our city’s IB (International Baccalaureate) High School. EVOKE seems like a perfect fit…but how to implement? Any guidance would be fantastic.
