Hey all,
Looking for someone who can get me in touch with people who might be interested in developing health-focused Etoys education software- nutrition, sanitation, HIV/AIDS awareness, malaria prevention, anatomy, etc. This is an initiative I want to grow in countries in Africa and could use some content help. Whether it's international health professionals or computer programmers who want to make the actual games, let me know.

A rather minor point....

As we talk about content to augment teaching specific concepts or tasks ,it might be better to use the educator terminology of learning object[1] rather than game.  I see rather a lot of push back when talking to teachers about 'games', but the parse 'learning object' seems to resonate well:)
