Video Games as Learning Tools
I spent a fascinating day at the Learning and the Brain Conference in San Francisco yesterday, and learned a lot about cognitive functions, memory retention, the learning process, and much more.
One of the highlights for me was hearing James Gee, faculty affiliate of the Games, Learning, and Society group at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, speak about how educators will evolve into becoming designers of learning experiences, just like video game designers. I’ll report back on the event next week. Until then, I’ll leave you with this video interview on Edutopia.
