Please join us in welcoming Samer Rabadi to the Edutopia team as our new Online Community Manager. Samer comes to us with extensive experience in working with communities at Care2 and Amnesty International. He's worn a million hats at those organizations, but most importantly, he worked tirelessly to support their members and ensure the communities had the information, tools, and resources they needed to succeed.

I am most excited to work with Samer, as he is truly passionate about education. He has worked directly with kids to empower them to change their communities. He believes that all children deserve the best education we can give them and "in the potential of all human beings to be awesome."

Welcome, Samer!

Hello everyone. I'm absolutely thrilled and honored to be in this position.

My goal is to help us connect, share ideas, and feel empowered to improve how we educate our children. To that end, you'll probably see requests from me soliciting feedback about how we can enhance the site. Please participate--we want to hear from you!

I look forward to working with you all!

Hello Samer,
Middle grade science teachers --who are not 'gamers'-- might like to use our free digital games to teach tough concepts like photosynthesis and electricity. This site is called Possible Worlds ( and it requires no registration or fees. It has a "how to" focus -- giving teachers free access to games and materials related to topics where students often struggle. There's also a video series designed to help teachers understand why digital games are so appealing to their students.

Our nonprofit created Possible Worlds with a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Education. Now the grant is over but we want teachers to have and use the games we created. We don't want this work to go to waste!

Thanks for sharing in whatever Edutopia venue is most appropriate!

Alison Cohen,
Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC)

Hi Alison. You have a nice site there. I'll pass along the information to our digital curator.

I also recommend posting a notice about the site to the Community Bulletin Board. That's where promotional posts (of education-related) resources are allowed on the site. Just use the Start a Discussion button located on this page:

One note: please don't use any other keywords/tags besides Community Bulletin Board. Adding anything else (even grade levels and subjects) will cause the post to be considered as spam.
