What Is Game Based Learning?

5 Myths About Digital Natives
APRIL 7, 2011
These kids will send texts, use email, poke friends on Facebook, tweet, share pictures/videos, even conduct entire relationships online. I’ve been working on some learning related material for children. Designing for children is a totally different ballgame from the workplace learning we are typically involved in.
