Celebrating National STEM day : ApplyingFUN [Stay curious keep Learning]
Learning through simulation and play has always been on my mind since I have started playing games. I always saw games as an interactive medium where you can fail(grow) safely while having Fun, and yet learn something useful. Of course these games needs to be designed with the intention of teaching something to the student and the player, rather than then intention of having them addicted and winning all the time.
Competitiveness is important but it should not be at the cost of learning, and growth in any game.
