Lo que nos ensean los videojuegos sobre el aprendizaje y el alfabetismo

James Paul Gee


James Paul Gees latest book is a must for all those who are interested in finding out what really happens when someone sits down to play Lara Croft, Tomb Raider, Arcanum or Deus Ex.
The scope of his argument includes comparing learning and literacy in video games with the learning and literacy in the work carried out in both effective and non-effective classrooms.
What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy is a book that widens our horizons to the possibility that video games are in reality precursors to tools for teaching that will determine how we learn in the future.
