Mr B Ed Tech Podcast: The Oregon Trail


In this podcast, I play through the classic game, "The Oregon Trail" for MS-DOS, circa 1990. After playing through the game, I give my critique as to whether or not the game still has educational value.

This podcast is a departure from my usual videos. Please excuse the "ums" and so on as this video has a lot of unscripted commentary.

Making a Silhouette in Microsoft Word

I had a teacher ask me about how to make a Silhouette without using something like Photoshop. There are some photo editing tools online that could accomplish this for a fee. However, if you already have Microsoft Word, this may be a quick and easy way for you.
