Great podcast on gaming. I went to National Education Computing Conference this summer and games in education was a major topic. Much of the content from NECC, including webcasts of some of the keynotes, is still available on the NECC 2005 website. http://center.uoregon.edu/ISTE/NECC2005/ Marc Prensky was one keynote speaker who talked about how we need to engage kids (sometimes with games) or we risk becoming irrelevant to them. Anyway, keep up the good work.
