Education Games get 'Speare'd

No, not Britney... I'm still trying to purge my mind from the crap she had released on the PS2, and besides I think she's setting bad examples through other media.

Anyway... This game was created to "teach students literacy skills by exposing them to a high-tech version of Shakespeare". It was made by a Guelph English Professor named Daniel Fischlin.

If only this was available when I was in high school, I'd blast my way through English! Nah, back then we had these things called "books" and we had to "read" them. I know, it's pretty crazy, I had a heck of a time getting people to believe me. I guess it makes sense when the majority of kids have the attention span of... what was I saying again?

Oh well it probably wasn't important anyway, check out CBC for the story [via Wired].

LOL funny post!
I had no idea Britney released something on the PS2. Say it isn't so?
How cool about Shakespeare. I happen to love it. I started reading the complete works of Shakespeare when I was seven or eight years old. Then again I was a book nerd (still am.)

Yeah, alas she did, it was called Britney's Dance Beat. It was a music dance game (think Bust-a Groove but not as good).
