sunday miscellany

1) I’ll be presenting at Games+Learning+Society with Steve Isaacs and Leslie Redd in June. We’ll be presenting our work on teaching with Portal 2 and running a workshop where educators can explore the Puzzle Maker and develop lesson plans to share and take home. You should meet us there!

2) A Portal themed web series? Ok, so it looks really dorky and cheesy… but it’s Portal! I’ll at least watch the first episode.

3) Check out GlassLab’s work with SimCity EDU. Very cool way to teach civics, social studies, the science behind running a city and probably a few other subjects as well. I fully support this kind of work.

Portal 2 at PAX East and Data

Two things:

1) Lisa Castaneda and Geoff Moore recently spoke at PAX East about teaching geometry with the Puzzle Maker. I love the idea of “broken levels,” where students have to finish building levels with certain restraints.

2) Here’s the data I used to analyze projectile motion, in case anyone ever wants to do their own data analysis: Portal 2 Position Time Data, Portal 2 Velocity Time Data.
