Hi there!


I used to think playing educational games in class was only useful to review content or to give my students a day off.  I was very, very wrong.

This is a place for serious teachers who play and make serious games. Follow us as we design games for our students and explore the ins and outs of teaching with games.  Together, we can make something pretty cool!



Teaching With Games was started by me, Charles Martindell.  I've been a teacher at a small, public high school since 2007.  For years I've been using primary source documents to drive instruction in my history and government classes.  I was recently bitten by the educational gaming bug, and so here we are!
