I’m slowly starting to come around to the idea that video games can help students learn. I’m waiting to read How Computer Games Help Children Learn and What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy. And, I think of the possibilities of games and learning when I see the Blueprint Game. The premise is simple. You have to move around the obstacles, ramps, and other assists to make the black ball hit the target. It seems simple enough, but it requires a lot of logic and thinking to make it work correctly. It can be almost maddeningly tough because it looks so simple. Now, when I think of video games and learning, I can see the possibilities.
