From Tabletop Games to the Classroom – a series of videos presented by the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics and the Derek Bok Center for Teaching & Learning, this series of videos explores ways in which we can use game design principles to create fun and effective learning experiences for our students. Games are fun and people spend lots of time of effort playing them. Is there anything that we can learn, as teachers, from games to improve our classroom activities and homework assignments?
This video introduces our series and answers the question: Why games? what kind of educational benefits can game design principles offer?
