Just published! Game-based Learning and the Power of Play

I am delighted to announce the publication of a new book on Game Based Learning which I have had the pleasure of co-ordinating and editing alongside my colleague Professor Nicola Whitton (MMU).0337753_game-based-learning-and-the-power-of-play_300

Published by Cambridge Scholars, this book explores the application, potential and challenges of game-based learning and gamification across multiple disciplines and sectors, including psychology, education, business, history, languages and the creative arts. With chapters exploring the use of games across the full educational spectrum – from early childhood education, through to the corporate sector – it provides comprehensive insights into the potential of games and play for facilitating learning and engagement at every life stage.

Thanks to my co-editor Nicola, to all the authors who contributed chapters and of course to the reviewers who provided invaluable feedback throughout the peer review process. It is great to see everyone’s hard work and efforts come to fruition.
