Donald Brickman- Program Manager at Microsoft Research - Game base learning means a lot of things and there are a lot of misconceptions such as it being a new thing (game base learning goes back to Roman times) and games being somehow different from learning. Modern games are very well design to motivate and engage people in many different levels. In school, when you get an F, there is a sense of finality to it but in a game, when you see the words “game over”, it typically makes you want to start over again. There is a sense of graceful failure and eventually you start to have a mindset that thinks creatively of entirely different ways to solve things. This is where innovation comes from.
