Ok. Somebody cue Kool and the Gang because Level Up has LOTS to celebrate this week. Thanks to YOU and the donations of over 40 sponsors, #levelupbc's Games4Good campaign raised $1040 for the American Red Cross and other charities aiding victims of hurricane Sandy!!! We are so proud of this achievement and as a token of our esteem, love and overwhelming gratitude, we created this video thank you card to acknowledge our generous sponsors!! Please pass it on to the folks who sponsored you and know that every thank you is meant from the heart! Also, if you missed this campaign and would still like to donate, it's not too late! The Red Cross's website offers several ways for you to give a little bit or a lot. Every dollar shared makes a difference.
But wait! That's not all! Matthew and I are also giddy with gratitude this week because Level Up was featured in this month's Knowledge Quest which is centered all around powering up your PLN. We were thrilled to be asked to contribute a piece about this great group of gaming educators who are exploring new and innovative pedagogy through our little club. What a thrill! If you're a member of AASL, you can view the issue on line, if not (join!) you can probably ask another school librarian if you can borrow theirs! Again, Level Up would not EXIST or be nearly as much fun without you, so THANK YOU so much for continuing to support our efforts to get our game on! We love Level Up so much! Which is why...
We are excited to announce our next Twitter Chat for our latest read: Karl Kapp's amazing book The Gamification of Learning and Instruction. Join us on MONDAY 11/19 at 8pm EST for a GREAT Twitter convo where we'll explore the concepts in the book AND announce our next read!
And one more time, for the record... THANK YOU for making this a week of EPIC WINS!
