I have nothing serious today. I sent something to the AP CS mailing list and got back a lot of out of office messages. I'm guessing a lot of people, especially teachers, are just relaxing these days. So today, just ways to have some fun and avoid real work. My friend Hilary sent me the following information last Friday.
We recently asked a number of students to use Popfly and submit a Popfly creation (a mash-up or a game). 10 of the games that were created were picked by the Popfly Team in the Games We Love http://popflywiki.com/GamesWeLove.ashx entry in the Popfly wiki.
Please find the links below … beware … these games are fun!
Now if you insist on educational value you can open up and see how each of those games was developed and modify them to suit yourself. Go ahead and list this as research.
