Learn With Portals… Teach With Portals!

I don’t know if you’ve seen this video before:

From Geek.com, back in 2011:

Steam have created “Teach with Portals”, a website that allows educators to sign up to gain access to an educational version of Portal 2 and the Portal 2 puzzle maker. The software uses realistic physics (just like the other Portal games) and inspires teachers and students to create their own puzzles, explore different worlds, and share custom lesson plans.

Here’s what the official site says about Teach With Portals:

Get started with Portal 2 and the Puzzle Maker and download a copy to try out this summer.  By signing up, educators also gain access to the Valve Education forum, where teachers from around the world share insights and advice on effective uses of video game technology in the classroom.

I haven’t got a class of my own to use this with, but I’ll be passing on the word and seeing what results.

…As long as they don’t start making advertising for their lessons like this:

"My wife and I apparently agree on the convention that "up" and "down" refer to ..."

"The fact that Tim Minchin has played the Royal Albert Hall is all the evidence ..."

"This seems ridiculous because all modern thermostats have an up and a down pointing button. ..."

"Keep that door closed, you're letting all the cold air in. Its so hot in ..."
