10 Ways Teachers Use massively multplayer online role-playing games (MMOs) in the Classroom

10 Ways Teachers Use massively multplayer online role-playing games (MMOs) in the Classroom | The Learning Game | Scoop.it

Academics have seized upon these games in order to better illustrate classroom lessons, build necessary character skills, and other lovely things you’ll find out if you keep reading.
