Games chat with Jim Gee

Just found this fascinating online chat transcript with Jim Gee @ The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Have a read. What do you think? It seems to me that this is such an important area and cannot afford to be ignored - especially considering that the Worldwide video games market is now bigger than the Worldwide Film/Movie Industry. Forecasts expect the games industry will soon overtake the worldwide music industry too. Not hard to imagine when you consider the stouch that is brewing with the release of the xbox360 and the PS3.

I say, GAME ON!

I think there's some merit to the argument that video games could be used.

Let's face it - we're in a world today where students have access to 150 cable channels, the internet, iPods, Xbox, etc. They learn from these sources, they're comfortable with the technology, and we should use these mediums to our advantage.

Carefully constructed video games would work. I'd sign up in a heartbeat.
