Alternative Reality Games

Games and simulations offer potential for engaging learning experiences. It’s disconcerting for educators to encountere mildly interested students during lectures and class activities, only to see their energy level and enthusiasm increase during breaks as they aggressively pursue online game activities. It’s enough to damage and educator’s delicate ego. Learning and games don’t need to be exclusive concepts. Alternative Reality Games (.pdf) is a great read on games in general…and education in paricular.
