“Good video games are good for your soul.”

James Paul Gee, Good Video Games + Good Learning (7)


There is a prejudice that a video game “…has nothing to do with anything so ponderous as ‘learning’. This is because school has made many people believe that pleasure and learning have nothing to do with one another. But this is untrue…So the real paradox is not that pleasure and learning go together, but, rather, how and why school manages to separate them.” (29)
