Benefits for Education

 

Games bring together ways of knowing, ways of doing, ways of being, and ways of caring: the situated understandings, effective social practices, powerful identities, and shared values that make someone an expert. (Shaffer, D. W., Squire, K. R., Halverson, R., & Gee, J. P., December 2004)
