Learn With Portals: Valve Giving Away Portal 2 to Teachers with Steam for Schools

The two links that sum it up best are  Learn with Portals and Teach With Portals. From The New York Times

“Somewhere out there an innovative, dynamic high school physics teacher will use Portal 2 as the linchpin of an entire series of lessons and will immediately become the most important science teacher those lucky students have ever had. For those of us who have left school behind, Portal 2 is one of the finest brain games around.” The New York Times, May 10, 2011.

The Teach with Portals site already has sample lesson plans available, alongside a FAQ, blog & wiki.  What an awesome idea.  Good on Valve and good on the teachers that recognize & utilize this tool for what it is: a way to further entice students into math & science.
