I originally wrote this post right before the 5th annual Games for Change Festival. It seemed like a good time to poke around and see what sorts of games might be out there that are geared towards teaching people something that will make a difference in the world.

As new technologies evolve and mature, they infiltrate our lives in ways we don't necessarily expect. Cell phones and Global Position Systems (GPS) have their obvious uses -- you can make and receive calls when away from home, and you can easily find places or people, including yourself if you get lost. People around the world have been putting these technologies to innovative use, creating "experiences" in public settings that are part game, part performance art, and part sociology experiment.
