EDUC 333: Video Games & Learning

Winter 2018

Prerequisites: None

Intended for: ALL undergraduates
Professor: Barry Fishman (

Why are video games fun? The answer isn’t as obvious as you might think. Good games draw you in, teach you how to succeed, and keep you engaged with a “just right” level of challenge. Most importantly, players learn while playing a well-designed game. Why isn’t school like that? This class takes a close look at video games, a close look at education, and considers ways that each can be improved to maximize learning and performance.
