The Federation of American Scientists (FAS) will
present the latest research-based uses of advanced digital technologies
for teaching, workforce training and lifelong learning. The
demonstration of three sophisticated games will be showcased as part of
House "Innovation Week." Three current games will be displayed for the
attendees. They include:
Immune Attack -- an advanced educational video game that teaches human immunology for 9th grade – college level students.
Discover Babylon – a cultural game that incorporates artifacts from exhibits at the Walters Museum of Art in Baltimore, MD, and transports the player to a virtual reality of ancient Mesopotamia (modern-day Iraq).
Multi Casualty Incident Responder – a high-stress, real-time training simulation for firefighters to serve as a national model for first-responder training.
All of this is well and good as long as it promotes the Federal Government to begin considering these virtual spaces as legitimate communities and adapt or adopt rules for economic activities there.
