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.
I found out that Leslie left Valve via a badly timed support email (I asked her a question, she said she was leaving Valve in a few hours). Just out of curiosity, is she coming independently, or as part of some other organization?
She’s coming independently. Despite not being at Valve anymore, she’s still committed to Portal 2 in education.
