Digital literacy.  Digital divide.  ICTs (Information Communication Technologies), MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), Social Media, it’s enough to make your head spin.

I’ve gleefully just dived into reading ‘Hanging Out, Messing Around, and Geeking Out – Kids living & learning with new media’, which is why this Habit app caught my attention.

HabitRPG  is a habit-improvement web and mobile app which uses game mechanics – such as leveling and hit points, competition amongst friends, and rewards – to motivate players to live healthy and productive lives.

In other words it helps you create healthy habits using gaming.  I’ve downloaded it to my Iphone & have it in my ‘try this now’ folder.  Check it out.
