EDUC 333. Video Games and Learning
Why are video games fun? The answer isn’t as obvious as you might think. Good games draw you in, teach you how to succeed, and keep you engaged with a “just right” level of challenge. Most importantly, players *learn* while playing a well-designed game. Why isn’t school like that? This class takes a hard look at video games, a hard look at education, and considers ways that each can be improved to maximize learning.
