Better Learning in Games

KiwiBelma's insight:

"This is a guide to inform next generation learning game designs. It is an introduction to the core

approaches used by many learning game designers, including the Learning Games Network and The
Education Arcade at MIT.
The aim of this guide is not to impose a new game development method—but rather to present a
learning design approach to be integrated with current best practices in game design."
