(2) Game based learning

Games & education?

A lot of people think that games are evil. The only thing the can learn us are bad things.

Last week the video game 'Manhunt 2' was banned in Britain because "it could cause a range of unjustifiable harm risks to adults and children".

So with this we assume that games can have some learning effect on us.

With this assumption it would be logical to dig into the world of games to find out if we can use games to create powerful learning experiences.
