Episode 44: History for Gamers

PodcastFor those of us who teach history, we often worry that video games are just a distraction that our students play instead of doing their homework. However, history and historical thinking have long been tied to video games, from Oregon Trail through present-day titles such as Civilization and Assassin’s Creed. Host John Fea reflects on his experience playing Assassin’s Creed III. They are joined by historian and host of the podcast History Respawned (@historyrespawn), Bob Whitaker (@WhitakerAlmanac).
