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.

Lessons from the Prisoner's Dilemma

You know this story. Two prisoners in separate interrogation rooms. The first one to confess gets the lesser sentence. But if both stay quiet they both get off. Here is an Interactive Tutorial on "The Prisoner's Dilemma

Notes from the site:
"The Prisoner's Dilemma is a simple game in which there is a tension between individual interests and the common good. It has been studied in Economics, Philosophy and Machine Learning, and its lessons are potentially crucial for understanding human relations, evolution and morality."

The unique feature of this site is that it will allow you to create and save an html and javascript version of the game for use on your own web site using the Iterative Game Generator. Nice..
