    Fellow Educators,

    I was hoping that you could help me with something. For the past six months or so, I have been working with an amazing group of 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students after school to teach them the basics of computer science (coding). While this was originally planned to be a six week long course, their excitement and enthusiasm has carried it on throughout multiple quarters of our school year (these students even want to help teach other students next school year). They have completed two courses via code.org and are nearly ready to start a third one! They love sharing some of the things they create within these courses on Edmodo! However, they are also ready to take their learning to the next level, which is using what they know to program robots!

    Below you will find a link to a DonorsChoose fundraising project. Please take the time to read more about this amazing group and help us reach our goal, whether it is through a donation or by helping spread the word about our project. Donations are tax-deductible, and if you donate within the next 5 days and use the promo code SPARK, your donation will be matched up to $100! Donations are also automatically set to donate 15% to DonorsChoose. If you would like the full donation to go to our project, there is an option to change it! Thank you in advance for your support!

    The ISTE Games and Sims Network would like to invite everyone to our book club that is opening up on Saturday, March 21 and runs until April 10, 2015. We have 2 tracks, you can do one or both!

    Sherry Jones will be teaching Track 1 Creating Interactive Fiction and the Narrative. If you are new to the term Interactive Fiction or IF, it is a genre of a videogame that is entirely text based. Sherry has been using it in her classroom to teach English, writing and rhetoric. Students write the completely text based story and also the commands that the player can chose. Track 1 is run as a lecture discussion with a close read of the topic. Sherry will start the session with readings on narratives and by Week 3 you will be playing with Interactive Fiction.

    For Track 2, Inevitable Instructors will be facilitating a discussion of the book, The Multiplayer Classroom: Designing Coursework as a Game by Lee Sheldon.
    As a happy coincidence, the Game Based Learning presenter for edWeb tomorrow is Lee Sheldon.
    He will be presenting The Multiplayer Classroom: Education in Play.
    Wednesday March 18 at 4 pm ET

    Track 2 is more of a traditional book club where people gather to discuss the book. This track centers around the discussions that will be held each Saturday in Google Hangout and in the Google + Community. In addition to the book we will be looking at a few other sites and platforms that help gamify your class.
    If you are interested in Track 2, we suggest you watch the webinar on Wednesday and then join us for a Google Hangout on Saturday, March 21 at noon for an introduction to the Multiplayer Classroom track.

    Build a Coding Club at an Elementary School: One Teacher’s Experience
    Thursday March 12 at 3 pm ET (US)

    Trish Cloud, Games & Simulations Network Officer will be presenting in an edWeb Webinar
    Would you like to learn how to start a coding club that meets Common Core, ISTE, and State Standards for Technology, and prepares students for 21st century learning? In this webinar, Trish Cloud, will offer practical tips and information on how she did just that with her students grades 1-5. Trish explains that more and more students in her school have expressed an interest in coding and amazingly enough, it has been wonderful to watch them pick it up so easily and get the basics of sequence, functions, and loops.

    Seeking innovative middle and high school teachers of all disciplines who want to explore an amazing Alternate Reality Game in and outside of the classroom. The concept is that there is a storyline in the game that students become a part of and they are given challenges (both from The Rez--the Resistance, which is the name of the group leading the charge to rescue all of human history--as well as from the local leaders who are teachers such as yourself.)

    The name of the game is Skabe din Fremtid, which means "Create Your Future" in Danish and seeks to engage students with the following storyline. Machines have begun to take over and have gradually begun to re-write all of recorded human history, replacing human impact with the impact of machines.

    The idea is that the students, or Humarchivists, as they are called in the game are supposed to research and engage in challenges that will help them re-create and re-archive human history (this would work equally well for encouraging students to "re-create" scientific experiments.

    I have done a great deal of work on this building the infrastructure on social media and plan on incorporating local newspapers, radio and television stations as well as the web.

    There is an Edmodo group that I hope you will join to help best plan and implement this novel way of learning. The group is called "Alternative Reality Games in Education" https://edmodo.com/public/alternative-reality... and the group code is: mrs54u

    Hope to see you there.

    Sincerely,

    Brian Mannix
    aka Eddie Sing, Rez Leader ; )
