Abstract

Although notions of gaming and play have been around seemingly forever, there is a recent surge of interest in the possibilities of using electronic gaming for teaching and learning. There are gaming conferences (e.g., Games + Learning + Society - http://glsconference.org/2007/), gaming journals (e.g., Game Studies - http://gamestudies.org/), educational game summits (e.g., Federation of American scientists - http://www.fas.org/gamesummit/), and gaming initiatives (e.g., Serious Games - http://www.seriousgames.org/). Foundations and granting agencies are also showing an increased interest in the use of electronic games (e.g., MacArthur Foundation - http://www.macfound.org).
