I use this blog to reflect and distill my thinking about simulations and games for learning. I look for ready to use resources to quickly create active learning experiences that engage and inform. I also share, news, ideas, and just for fun.

The Game is the Medium

In case you thought that games always means something electronic, take a look at this exhibition called Pastimes and Paradigms : GAMES WE PLAY ll Cornell University Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections:

From the site:
"The Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections investigates the evolution of games since 1800...Although they (the games) differ in design and presentation, they share a single message: the game is the medium."

What lessons do you see for designing games for learning?
