Learning is labor. We're selling the fantasy that technology can change that. It can’t. No technology ever has. Gutenberg’s press only made it easier to print books, not easier to read and understand them.” Peter Berger, "The Land of iPods and Honey," The Irascible Professor, February 26, 2007 ---  at http://irascibleprofessor.com/comments-02-26-07.htm David Fordham’s Jeopardy Games http://cob.jmu.edu/fordham/AECM1.htm :  David Fordham’s Jeopardy Games http://cob.jmu.edu/fordham/AECM1.htm One of the simplest, yet most unusual, applications I use for PowerPoint is my own parody of the Jeopardy game. If you download it and try it, I think you'll have to agree it is ultra-simple, downright embarrassingly so, yet the students get a kick out of it, since it is so unlike any PowerPoint session they've ever seen. Class participation a la mode! Not a lot of new learning takes place on the day I play the game, but the students have a good time! I use Snickers bars for the winners, and a homework review sheet for the losers! There’s also a Double Jeopardy Version!

Monopoly is Widely Used in Economics, Accounting, and Elsewhere :  Monopoly is Widely Used in Economics, Accounting, and Elsewhere Monopoly from Parker Bros. has been used across the years by various accounting, finance, economics, and sociology instructors to interest students in accounting, finance, and social studies.

Not Much Use for Accounting Classes How can you make your own video game, possibly an educational game that you put online? :  How can you make your own video game, possibly an educational game that you put online? People who love to create their own blogs, podcasts, and movies have a new outlet for self-expression: home-made video games.

Researchers at Intel are working on a system that could make it much harder to cheat at online games. Unlike current software-based anti-cheating technology, Intel's Fair Online Gaming System would be built into a player's computer, in a combination of hardware, firmware, and software. Video Game Worries :  Video Game Worries Boys who play video games on school days spend 30 percent less time reading and girls spend 34 percent less time doing homework than those who do not play such games, U.S. researchers said on Monday.

Accounting Second Life 3-D Model Steven Hornik at the U. of Central Florida :  Accounting Second Life 3-D Model Steven Hornik at the U. of Central Florida Since there has been some interest regarding Second Life on this list from time to time, I wanted to share a demo of a model I created in Second Life that I will be using with my class this coming Fall. It's a 3-D interactive accounting model (A=L+E). If you are in Second Life and want to play with it let me know. It's currently on my Parcel in Sweetbay, but will be moving to Teaching 4, part of the New Media Consortium's archipelago, where University of Central Florida's accounting department has just leased a plot!

Videos can be made of lecture materials, Web materials, Blackboard files, etc. They can be served up on CDs, Web wervers, WebCT servers, Blackboard servers, etc. Users can replay videos over and over and over. Latest versions of Camtasia allow for interactsions between the student and the Camtasia video.

Could robots play Monopoly in basic accounting and economics courses?"U.S. Colleges Retool Programming Classes," by Greg Bluestein, PhysOrg, May 26, 2007 --- http://physorg.com/news99378145.html  The lesson plan was called "Artificial Unintelligence," but it was written more like a comic book than a syllabus for a serious computer science class. "Singing, dancing and drawing polygons may be nifty, but any self-respecting evil roboticist needs a few more tricks in the repertoire if they are going to take over the world," read the day's instructions to a dozen or so Georgia Tech robotics students.
