I recently read a great book on the impact of games by Jane McGonigal called Reality is Broken Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change The World. I'd highly recommend this book especially because as educators, we are teaching a generation of college students who are very familiar with the world of games. I'd also recommend watching her TED talks for those who are interested!
I'm wondering if anyone has any other recommendations for reading about games and psychology, game design or game-based learning?
I'd also love to hear what your thoughts are on game-based learning, and how you would like to incorporate games as a learning tool in the classroom (if you already have, how you're using games to enhance learning!).
Looking forward to hearing form others :)
