Using games as an educational tool provides opportunities for deeper learning

Using games as an educational tool provides opportunities for deeper learning | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
Interaction and opportunities to make choices are among the virtues of the new generation of educational games, experts say.
Pierre Levy's insight:

If indeed humans think immeasurably better as part of a network than on their own, then games are an obvious terrain in which to set minds free and let them wander around, interacting with whatever or whomever they encounter. The system of points, badges, rewards and leaderboards featured in most massively multiplayer online (MMO) games can be replicated in an educational context, experts say, to account for people's different motivations and needs for interaction or self-expression.
