Games can be Learning Tools

Just read a blog post by Larry Ferlazzo in his Websites of the Day that the Smithsonian has launched it's own game site, proving once again that if learning is fun, our students will learn! There is only one game on the Smithsonian's Website right now called Shutterbugs which is also available for download but it looks like they will have more games in the coming months, looks promising especially for elementary education! There are curriculum connections and teachers resources which also provide teachers with reports on how their students are doing in the game.
