education learning

    • 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
