I use this blog to reflect and distill my thinking about simulations and games for learning. I look for ready to use resources to quickly create active learning experiences that engage and inform. I also share, news, ideas, and just for fun.

I caught part of this on the radio and wanted to hang on to it. The commentary provides some insight into what makes a "game" into a "simulation".
