Gee: What We Can Learn From Video Games

In our quest to provide you with some background on games and education, we must not forget forgot James Paul Gee, aka, J.P. Gee, the baby boomer scholar who explained why boomers shouldn’t dismiss the educative power of video games in his book, What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy. Second Edition: Revised and Updated Edition.

The book is a great read; educators should read the book. Here’s a Edutopia video of Gee explaining the types of learning that take place in video games to give you taste of what he discusses in the book.
