I've not long ago started working at a school as the "IT Guy" and after discussing the multimedia lab's computer specs with the area IT guy, and figuring out how Quake and Battlefield could be educational and hence bought and installed, I've come to really think about it. Computers aren't really a big thing here as much as I've gathered, being really nothing more than word processors with a little bit of multimedia editing thrown in (I'd apply this mentality to the town, not just the school).
So I was thinking, are there any really fun educational games that you know of? One thought was Typing of the Dead, but then it's a state school, and I don't think killing zombies with words would exactly warm parents.
I'm envisioning some kind of multiplayer game with education thrown in. I can't think of any fun educational stuff that I've seen. Iunno... I'm just throwing it out there. @:-) It's a good project idea too. You could make alotta money out of schools.
