What is it about video games that make them such effective tools for learning and teaching people new material? Put another way, how might you take the lessons of video game design and apply them as either a teacher or a student? In this episode I talk with Karl Kapp about what video games have in common with effective classrooms, training, or other learning environments and why an over reliance on “points, badges, and leaderboards” isn’t a good idea.
