    • The really basic skill today is the skill of learning, and the best use of games is to leverage their tendency to enhance it
    • talking about games and learning is an important activity
    • when they get the support and have access to suitable software systems, children’s enthusiasm for playing games easily gives rise to an enthusiasm for making them, and this in turn leads to more sophisticated thinking about all aspects of games
    • the idea that children should draw, write stories and play music is not contradicted by the fact that their work is not of professional quality

    • In the past, children may not have liked School, but they were persuaded to believe that it was the passport to success in life. To the extent that children reject School as out of touch with contemporary life, they become active agents in creating pressure for change. Like any other social structure, School needs to be accepted by its participants. It will not survive very long beyond the time when children can no longer be persuaded to accord it a degree of legitimation.
