Dinosaur Game

Who isn't interested in dinosaurs??

I came across this amazing live-action game designed FOR KIDS at a LIBRARY and it is way too cool not to share.  Scott Nicholson, a professor in the ISchool at the University of New York-Syracuse, designed it.  I found out about it when doing some research on meaningful gamification.  More on that topic next week!

This seems like a game that would fit really well into a program that is loosely based on super-heroes, since kids need to travel back in time to help a mother dinosaur in distress. Check it out!
