Of course in reading Gee this week, all I want to do is procrastinate by playing games. At least there are some awesome “games for change” or the so-called “serious games” out there which might even provide interesting fodder for conversation next week. Here are some of my faves, in case you too, want to procrastinate:
LIM, about navigating the world as a transgender person, though its message can be more broadly applied to navigating the world with a difference of some kind.
Trauma, a game about bullying and discrimination
Ayiti, Cost of Life, a game made by some students in the program I used to work for at Global Kids (though before my time at the org)
Tampon Run, made by some teens at a Girls Who Code event.
A game created by some students of mine on Scratch in 2014!
The Migrant Trail – About undocumented immigrants

Please add to this list in the comments if you play any fun ones… these are all playable for free online!
