Over the past decade, the use of digital gaming in education has prompted considerable attention in exploring how and why games might be powerful tools in the classroom. As a result of this interest, there is a considerable body of resources available on Game-based Learning (GBL) and its potential benefits for education and learning.
This guide is intended for educators and parents of primary and secondary school children, who wish to explore the emerging universe of GBL. This information was gathered with the intent to help locate most relevant resources on the Web.
The resources include a selection of current research papers in the field of GBL, as well as relevant websites, multimedia and Web 2.0 resources (wikis, blogs, Tweeter feeds) intended to provide an insight into current developments in this exciting field.
