Don’t Bother Me Mom, I’m Learning

Video games are the future of learning

In their book Playstation Nation, Olivia and Kurt Bruner present “complex” video games as anaddiction waiting to happen. They point to the complexity of the games and the game developers’ attempts to engage us as a deliberate strategy by video game developers to get players addicted.

It is, of course, those same things that make video games so much fun to play and enable us to learn while we are playing. In his book Don’t Bother Me Mom, I’m Learning, Marc Prensky discusses video games as a conduit for our children to learn in a way that just wasn’t available to previous generations.
