Video Games and the Future of Learning
This article introduces an approach to the design of learning environments that builds on the educational properties of games, while grounding them in a theory of learning appropriate to today’s digital age. The article argues that video games will transform education, and therefore we must ask ourselves: who will create the games of the future? And will they be based on sound theories of learning and socially conscious educational practices?
