Thank you for so many great ideas. Can't use all of them in my classroom, but I love the Migrant Trail idea!

Great webinar. Just getting started with this, exploring what is out there.
Great ideas, pokemon seems to have died way down though.

I am so impressed with the 'learning algebra game'!
Also I don't play Pokemon so I had no idea that it taught evaluating evidence, constructing an argument, and critiquing that argument!
