    I see the price is $150 for a group. How is group defined? Would it be all my students, whom I've divided into classes (groups)?
    • Mr. Hansen - So your telling me that since we have web filters in place, we are being punished? I'm sorry, but this is absurd.
      Schools are trying to keep their kids safe from dangerous places on the web. I feel like you are taking advantage of this by monetizing a place on the web which was previously free, and free to anyone that does not have a web filter in place.

      • 3rd World Farmer Team - Hi Mr. Hansen.
        Our main http://www.3rdworldfarmer.com website is monetized by ads on the pages. The edmodo app is free of ads, and monetized by the license fee instead, since the ads can be a problem in a school setting. We do need to monetize the game in these ways to cover hosting, development and maintenance cost, and you're welcome to use either option. We are hardly punishing you in any way, since it is out of our control whether you decide to

      • Mr. Cranston - I'm with 3rd world farmer on this one. Sorry Mr Hansen. Whitelisting is a pretty straight-forard option.

    • Mr. Speight - Is there a benefit to using the app here on Edmodo that the website doesn't allow me as a teacher to do?

    Is there a benefit to using the app here on Edmodo that the website doesn't allow me as a teacher to do?
    • 3rd World Farmer Team - Yes, the Edmodo app has 3 benefits.
      * It's ad-free.
      * It doesn't need to be unblocked by school firewalls, which has been an issue with the website.
      * It has social features. These are currently limited to a few badges that players are awarded when they complete the game, but we do have plans to extend the social features.
      I hope this answers your question. If you have suggestions for new features or ways we could improve the game, feel free to share them here.

    • Mr. Speight - That's actually exactly what I was hoping to hear. Right now I'm trying to get the site unblocked for the district, but it's nice to know there is a fallback if that doesn't work.

    The Dust Bowl is a period in US History that can really add some perspectives to 3rd World Farmer. We just wanted to share this great pbs documentary about it, including their interactive content on the linked website. As always, feel free to share this and other resources, as well as your own teaching experiences. http://www.pbs.org/kenburns/dustbowl/interact...

    Here's an interesting article about how China is handlings some of the problems also discussed in 3rd World Farmer. Nobody can object to an improved infrastructure with easier access to education and clinics, or the attempts to develop the economy for the rural population, but the idea of anybody forcing 250 million people to sell their land and move into newly constructed and totally planned communities is still just a little bt scary...

    • 3rd World Farmer Team - That is great to hear. Have you tried 3rd World Farmer, the game? Feel free to send us any feedback you may have, either here or via our contact-form on the site. We're considering adding trees as new crops, both to serve as fruit crops and for firewood, and to provide shade and moisture and help prevent desertification.
