FutureLab – Teaching with Games

“Teaching with Games was a year-long project supported by Electronic Arts, Microsoft and Take-Two, as well as the Interactive Software Federation of Europe (ISFE), investigating the place of mainstream commercial computer games in the classroom. The project aimed to provide practical and informed evidence of the implications and potential of the use of these games in school, and an informed strategy for future educational development requirements, based upon collaborative discussions between industry and the education community.”

Teaching with Games looks to be a completed project using the games Knight of Honour, The Sims 2, and Rollercoast Tycoon. The three games were selected and played through to test for and find learning opportunities in the games.
