7 Things You Should Know About Games and Learning

The Games and Learning Group from the Educause Learning Initiative (ELI) just released an updated version of 7 Things You Should Know About Games and Learning. In addition to the ELI report, the NMC 2014 Horizon Report included “Games and Gamification” as an emerging technology that is “likely to have a large impact over the coming five years in education around the globe.”  Both are interesting reads.

Patrons can check out a variety of gaming formats from M&RS for 7 days.  Formats include: GameCube, PS, PSP, X-Box, X-Box 360, and Wii.

I will attempt to spotlight content related to gaming each month.  Content information can come from an article, blog, website, etc.

My spotlight for this month is Gamemoir, “a video game culture and lifestyle website dedicated to delivering entertaining, fresh, and through-provoking content to our readers…we write about the experiences, reflections, people we meet, and the games we love to play from the unique perspective of our diverse stable of contributors. We dig deeper into dissecting our favorite video games to give our readers a new perspective on topics they thought they knew.”  Enjoy!
