How Games Lead Kids to the Good Stuff: Understanding Context

How Games Lead Kids to the Good Stuff: Understanding Context | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Students understand how integer partitions work within a system.
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

What video games do — better than any other medium is let people understand a world from the inside.
