How Games Should Go to School

James Paul Gee

Universidad del Estado de Arizona, EE.UU.


The following essay deals with the subject of video games as a learning resource that could benefit learning acquisition. A game is a well-designed teaching machine that enables gamers to develop strategies for problem solving. Game-based learning is not measured by time, but, rather, by a trajectory towards mastery, no matter how much time it takes. Simply teaching information (“facts”) does not lead to the ability to use this information to solve problems and retained the information for a long time.
