26 Learning Games to Change the World

When I saw the title I was intrigued, but it wasn't until I read the article detailing the games did I stand up and take serious notice. From "Darfur is Dying" to "Whack TB" and "World Without Oil" or "Climate Change" and more I was impressed by the seriousness of the topics covered. Now you can participate in a political adventure, learn to fight TB, donate rice to the United Nations World Food Program, save lives from malaria, role-play what it's like growing up in poverty and even more. Plus they're all free and browser based. Nothing to pay and nothing to install. Check it out HERE

Many thanks for the mention. These are indeed great games - it was good to find that there are so many out there. On the hunt now for massive multi-player games (MMOG) for change, so if you or any of your readers know of any, please comment on the post or send me an e-mail at jcobb_at_missiontolearn.com. - Jeff
