There is that no suggestion is made to the potential of digital games to boost humanities fields. Oh, sorry, I forgot. No one cares about humanities anymore. Do excuse me.

Jessica Trybus of the New Media Institute makes an interesting point. “Deconstruct the fun in any good game,” she says, “and it becomes clear that what makes it enjoyable is the built-in learning process.”

Good basic introduction to the pros and cons of game-based learning

Marc E. Moglen's comment, June 19, 2013 8:58 AM
At first, I did not like this article's title, but now I find it appropriate. It seems as if it is still not clear what the practical effects of digital games in the learning environment will be (I say "will" as it seems inevitable). Justin Boyle does mention a study that showed (in the case of University students) that "despite the better written and group assignment performance of the traditionally educated subjects, the game-enhanced students completed the course with better average scores overall". This is a concerning finding as it suggests that games may be readily adopted if it is shown that they can increase student performance (e.g. grades), yet the fact that games may lower actual facets of educational progress (e.g. group work) will probably be swept under the carpet.

One of the most under reported stories of quality-of-life issues: sound. Why is it that we are so concerned with the rights of the corporation to make the maximal profit? The concern should most certainly be about the rights of people to have a livable life.
