Will video games change the way we learn? In an age marked by the power of new technologies, the answer to this question is most probably yes.
Video games present players/pupils with simulated worlds, which, if well constructed, are not just about facts or isolated skills, but embody particular social experiences.
Teachers increasingly use electronic games and digital media in their classroom teaching. Why do they choose to do so? What types of games do they use? What do they do with them? What are the difficulties that they encounter?
