I just learned about the group from a post in the DP DT Basecamp discussions. I'll be moving down to the middle-school programme next year and am excited to already have a community to join.

Currently, I teach the DP program at Cairo American College. My website is http://nolatlabs.com.

I have students who post their portfolio work on our Apps for Ed Google+. For most students, I have no problem: I can see their work and post comments in response. For one student, however, I can see her work but cannot post comments in response. She is set up the same as my others students; that is:

* Her posts are marked "shared publicly"
* I am following her, and the collection in which she is posting
* She is following me

We cannot figure out why I'm not allowed to respond to her posts. Any help? Her Google+ account is Y Zhang. Thanks! (https://plus.google.com/u/1/105749109843436331712)

Here's a neat tool: Newsela. Quoted from Forbes online, 'There is nothing more humbling than when your child comes home from school and says to you, “Gaming is better for children’s brains, Mom! Even Minecraft!” When I asked for his sources, he told me he learned this at school, namely from Newsela, a company that takes a single story and rewrites it to fit into five different reading levels so that an entire class or grade or possibly even an entire school can read the same story at the same time in the same place.'

This sounds like a great source for pre-differentiated materials. I haven't checked it out for how comprehensive its coverage but I think it's worth a look.

Legends, Battles, Mystery, Betrayal!  Worldbuilding as course development.

Brandon Zerr-Smith and I are presenting in a few hours as part of the inaugural Gaming In Ed online conference (3:00pm EST).  Join us!  

You can see the full conference schedule and link session recordings at http://gamingined.com

Wow, just ran across this list of almost 400 games for use in the classroom, clearly explained and described.  A very nice resource for teachers wanting to expand into using games for their class.

Just getting started with a course-based game this year (Introduction to Programming).  I'm documenting my progress at http://coursegame.com.  Was very pleased to find this community!  Looking forward to sharing with you all; I've already noticed several things I need to investigate.  Wohoo!
