can you pwn in Office? or does Office pwn you? February 11, 2010

Here’s an interesting post on education + gaming + MS OFFICE 2010.  The approach here is something I’ve been thinking about for sometime.  Interactive applications like games are a fascinating way to present new information.  Heck, my kids learned to read with Reader Rabbit and they learned to avoid the pretty blue flower in our front yard  (foxglove) while playing Oregon Trail and they learned that Nazis are bad people while playing Medal of Honor and they learned that there are hordes of blonde girls wanting to be their friend– OK, so I’ve gone too far 🙂  but seriously, why not learn about Office?  Or EXCHANGE!    Cisco is already doing this;  they have binary and subnetting games!  I think this is an exciting venue.  Do you?  If you’re looking for more information on the MS OFFICE 2010 Ribbon Hero game, click the earlier link above or go here to Microsoft’s research site.
