Learning often involves becoming immersed in a topic well enough to see things from a different perspective.  Mission U.S. is just such an immersive experience.  Mission U.S. is an interactive first person simulation of life during the U.S. Revolutionary period. As a player you become Nat Wheeler and make a series of decisions and take on a series of tasks to progresss through the gameplay.  Based on your decisions you either become a revolutionary or a loyalist and you can never know fully which direction each choice might take you.

This project will be highlighted in UEN's Professional Development Faculty Lounge.  Visit at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday December 2 to join in or Click Here ( to see the archives.  The archives are usually posted within a week of the original webcast.

Welcome to Jorgie Learning

I really am learning and this blog is maintained both as a record of some of what I am doing as well as a place for me to train and teach others about creating an online presence. So please don't mind the dust. We aren't remodeling we are learning!

Visit some of my other blogs or the other blogs I find mildly entertaining for a more polished feel.
