Brenda Brathwaite – Games for a Change

Published on 2013-04-30, by in Game Design.

I love TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) talks. This video shows that a “simple game” can be a more powerful learning experience for difficult subjects (Such as middle passage, holocaust) than a month of school, reading, assignments, and videos.

If you want people to truly “understand” something it needs a simulation. The military trains pilots on simulators, not books and videos alone. Games are still considered a form of childish entertainment and not the next big thing in education. Someday people will look back and go “Ohyea games, it’s obvious those are much better teaching tools how could anyone not have seen that?”
