Quite awhile a ago I wrote a post about Poptropica, a free online game from Pearson that is very well-designed. However, in my post I shared my disappointment that a education publisher, one with so many good products for schools, teachers and students, would incorporate so few learning opportunities in it.

Jeffrey Hill offers some ideas and a link to an article about why Pearson might have developed the game.

It’s worth checking-out both Jeffrey’s blog post and the article.
