We often think of games as something we do just for fun and to pass the time, but can they also reinvigorate education? Those in favor of the idea such as Jane McGonigal, the author of Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World (Penguin Press, 2011), point to the potential benefit of increased engagement that results from positive emotional effects players experience. Games can also teach those that play themthat failure is permitted. In this session we’ll explore pros, cons and discuss how to get started with incorporating games in the classroom. We’ll also get hands-on, with a little friendly competition to come up with some game-based learning ideas based on learning outcomes, subjects and an existing game!
