ICT in Practice - Games Based Learning: Theory and Practice

I recently wrote an article in ICT in Practice magazine - Games Based Learning: Theory and Practice.

I won't spoil the read too much suffice to say that it covers ground that we have blogged about here, but it is well worth a read as it works as a nice summary. The article introduces games based learning, discusses our design and development approach, the underpinning learning theory (situated learning) and goes on to present a case study of the use of our Sustainaville product in schools.

The article has got picked on twitter and other blogs. Ryan Schaaf at the Committed Sardine Blog does a particularly nice rewrite.

A demonstration of Sustainaville can be found at
