Using Games to Enhance Learning and Teaching – The Book

Last year I was lucky enough to be invited to co-author a chapter in a book about using games in learning and teaching. I’m happy to announce that the book is now published and available to buy from Routledge directly and Amazon.

I think this is an excellent book, but I would say that! The book is written for educators of adults rather than younger learners (who seem to have been well catered for in other other publications) and specifically for those who have little or no experience of using games in the classroom. Sceptics should also read this book!

The book opens by laying out the pedagogical rational for using games and then illustrates how game principles can be applied effectively in education. The rest of the book provides practical examples and case studies of where games are currently being used in the classroom.

If you are interested in games and learning, I heartily recommend the book. If you are interested in innovation in teaching and learning, you should also give it a whirl.

Here’s the link. We’d love to know what you think.
