Energyville, "SimCity" for the Science Classroom

One of my personal goals for the year is to look more at the gamification of the classroom. As a student, I know I spent a lot of my time in front of my computer screen playing games with my dorm mates. If we can harness the same level of engagement with our students in our classrooms, imagine how awesome that would be!

Today I found Energyville thanks to Twitter. It's sponsored by Chevron and I'm really impressed by how much information is put in to it. The cool thing about it is that there is a group way to play so we can get kids to play with/against each other. In fact, I went ahead and created a group game for me so you can try it out and see what you think. Click here to join me!

As always, let me know what you think about this post!
