Play has always been central to human learning. In the digital era the potential for learning through games and for tapping the powers of engagement that well-designed games have often fostered has drawn ever more scholarly, practitioner, and business interest. This forum will consider the opportunities and challenges of gaming to learn in education’s digital future.
