Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 18, 2014 9:58 PM

Mind/Shift has run a series on digital games and learning and has not put together a guide that provides the highlights of this series. Why? To quote from the post... "to create a dynamic, in-depth guide that answers many of the most pressing questions that educators, parents, and life-long learners have raised around using digital games for learning."

A few of the topics covered are:

* What Research Says About Gaming and Screen Time

* How to Start Using Games for Digital Learning

* Overcoming Obstacles for Using Digital Games in the Classroom

The post provides a more in-depth overview.
