A Beautiful Visual on The Importance of Games in Learning | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Elementary Education | Scoop.it

Games are very important for learning and James Paul Gee has empirically proved this in his wonderful book " What Video Games Have to Teach Us about Learning and Literacy".

He further states that games provide a life enhancing experience for learners and they also revolutionize the routinized ways of learning through fusing learning and play. You can learn more about Gee's book in this post I have published a few months ago.
