Gamification

23 Dec

My wife sent me a video yesterday of a TED Talk by Gabe Zichermann, of the Gamification Blog, talking about how educational games may be the best way to teach the stimulation-craved generation “G”.  Zichermann gets rather excited about the possibilities here and may stretch his argument a little at points, but the overall message that the “kids are alright”, and are capable of learning with the right techniques, definitely inspire.

Check out the talk, get inspired, and maybe try out an educational game in one of your classes:
