I've spoken a lot about computer games in schools over the years and then one day the guys at Microsoft suggested that I write a short book to share my thoughts with others.
So that is what we did. The result is Playful Learning: Computer Games in Education.
Launched at the 2012 NAACE Annual Conference the book recieved over 2000 downloads in the first two weeks. It has now been downloaded over 10, 000 times and counting...
Playful Learning is free and will remain a free to download to anyone who wants a copy (I also occasionally give away some of the printed copies that we had made for a few special events).
The book is split into five short chapters titled:
- Why use computer games?
- Contextual Hubs for Learning
- Learning from Games
- Making Games
- Why is it important to teach about games?
- Overcoming the challenges and getting started
