I had to submit my deck for my DevLearn workshop on Cognitive Science for Learning Design last week, but oddly, for every thing I was recommending I had a diagram, except for the notion of using models. This is ironic, since diagrams can be used to convey models. It bugged me, so I pondered. And I like diagrams. meta-learning

In the learning game design workshop that Karl Kapp and I offer (the next one will be at DevLearn 2014 ), the very thing we do is to play some games.
