On Using Games for Learning

Games-based learning, gamification, gameful learning, simulations, scenarios, and playful design. What are these and where do they all fall? Are they games? Are they for entertainment? Should we take them seriously? The gap between instruction and learning and games-based learning is rapidly closing. What will happen in the future with games for learning and how can you prepare to put your own games to work?  Join four gamers, designers, educators, and academics as they discuss the whole field of using games for learning and what the future holds for us.
