Just before I was rushed to the hospital on June 7, 2011, some of you may know (and if you don't), I was working with a global education company as a consultant and helped to organize a games-based mathematics learning arcade for youth in NYC at the World Science Festival.
My friend (RS), shared a link with me about an article that talks about Online Youth Gamers who have cracked an AIDS Enzyme Puzzle! How frick'n cool is that?!!
I am a huge fan of games-based learning in the classroom and think more teachers should be tuning into this kind of learning in the classroom.
While my life is now taking a very different direction with activism and public speaking, the company I worked for offers one of the most incredible online games-based learning environments for mathematics (and it's FREE). If you are a teacher - which I know many of my followers are, and would like to know more information about this awesome Mathematics program, send me an email and I will be happy to send you a link to the site. (I am not mentioning the site here, in fear of publicly associating my HIV status with their company).
Education is the key. . . and this type of news really gets my blood pumping in excitement! Please share this article with your friends, teachers and other educators! Games-based learning rocks - and it's doing good for people living with HIV/AIDS.
I am Daniel and I am living pozitively. Thank you for following my blog!
