[ gbl10 ]: Gaming for social good

Earlier this week at Game-Based Learning 2010 I was talking about how play mechanics and attitudes could perhaps do as much offline as on (Part 1; Part 2), in terms of raising expectations of how young people and adults learn, socialise and live... with some sense of enjoyment and engagement. Via Rory at Ogilvy comes news that the winner of the FunTheory call to action on YouTube is the example, above, of how to make people keep to the speed limit.

What play theories or fun theories could we introduce in your schools to help Good Things Happen?
