Computer Games in Schools

University of Stockholm Department of Education, Stockholm, Sweden

This was a small but very informative conference about some of the educational opportunities afforded by bringing computer games into schools. Among other things I got the chance to meet and chat quite a bit with Espen Arseth, the founder of the Game Studies Journal, the first and so far the only peer-reviewed journal on the subject of games. I gave a short lecture called "Using Game Design to Teach Effectively."
