Abstract

Those interested in education and educational research have continually been drawn to the potential value of digital games for improving aspects of teaching and learning. However, the development path that the digital game genre has followed in culture and society may heavily rely upon certain assumptions about human behavior which are not conducive to current understandings of good teaching and effective learning. As such, this paper will argue that rather than merely repurposing the game genre to educational ends, it behooves us as educators to reformulate our understanding of digital games and game-like tools in a manner which rests firmly upon current and emergent theories of learning.
