SimCity is an always-online, fast-paced, intuitive, and forgiving city simulator that lets kids build (and destroy) single-player cities in multiplayer regions. Students can learn about what makes a great city, city management by keeping a budget, running a surplus, or issue bonds to keep afloat. Kids can play together in the same region, or as a single player who manages all the cities in it. In this Appy Hour hosted by Graphite by Common Sense Media, videogame journalist, critic, and teacher David Thomas will share ideas on how SimCity can be used by teachers for a fun and engaging learning environment.

View the session live on Common Sense Education’s YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/CommonSenseEducators), and join the Twitter conversation using the hashtag #appyhour

Looking for ways to foster students' digital literacy and 21st century skills? Join this month's Appy Hour, hosted by Common Sense Media's Graphite, to learn about Mozilla's Popcorn Maker, a free website where students can edit and remix videos. For upper elementary through high school and even in higher ed, students can pull in audio or video "base" layers of media from sites like SoundCloud, Vimeo, or Youtube, and edit in text, images, and other multimedia components. Students can also publish their videos and make them available for others to remix. You'll hear from two innovative educators who will take you on a tour of Popcorn Maker and explain how they're using it with students. Hosted in partnership with Educator Innovator, view the session live on Common Sense Media's YouTube channel, and join the Twitter conversation using the hashtag #appyhour .

Presenters: Amy Burvall is a teacher at Le Jardin Academy in Hawaii. She has been recognized for her History for Music Lovers video series.

Jen Proctor is an Assistant Professor of Journalism and Screen Studies at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, and has blogged about using Popcorn Maker for film studies.

Host: Merve Lapus, Sr. Manager of Education Programs, Common Sense Media
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Common Sense Educators. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
