Power Play (Authors praise iCivics)

iCivics is featured in a new book exploring how video games are pioneering social change around the world.
POWER PLAY: How Video Games Can Save the World by Asi Burak and Laura Parker devotes a chapter to iCivics’ origin story to illustrate how video games can be a force for good in society.
The chapter narrated how Justice Sandra Day O’Connor was inspired to turn educational video games into the nation’s largest civic engagement project, which is now used by over 5 million students every year.

Immigration and Human Rights

As questions arise in the classroom about immigration policy (treatment of asylum seekers, fate of refugees fill both the news and "fake news" in every medium from print of cyber tweet), human rights educators can help their students explore these contentious issues using materials from the Advocates for Human Rights -- online for free.
