Lucas Gillispie Brings World of Warcraft into the Classroom 

What happens in the classroom when learning becomes a heroic journey?  Rather than desks and chalkboards, what if students had quests and guilds?  Going beyond simply swapping grades with badges and achievements, Lucas Gillispie, founder of the WoWinSchool Project, will share the journey he and other adventurous educators have begun using World of Warcraft and other MMORPGs to engage students in a playful approach to practicing reading and writing skills.  Along the way student-heroes are becoming better communicators, leaders, and connecting with a global audience.
