Videogames are becoming a progressively more important component of teaching today. They can provide learners with rich worlds and complex narratives that both enhance and transform their educational experience in previously unexplored ways. Because of this, we are pleased to announce that, as part of a joint research project between MLTI and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, Dr. Ruben Puentedura has created a 14-part podcast series on videogames in education. This mini-course, available now in its entirety from iTunes U, provides educators with the knowledge needed to successfully use educational gaming in their classroom. The podcast series will be supplemented by ongoing posts and discussions on Dr. Puentedura's blog, with more materials to be announced in the coming months.
