(This audio podcast series with slides is viewed in iTunes)

"Videogames can provide learners with rich worlds and complex narratives that both enhance and transform their educational experience. Harnessing this potential calls for understanding the principles underlying successful games, and how to apply them in the classroom. This 14-part podcast series, created by Dr. Ruben  Puentedura as part of a joint research project between MLTI and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, will provide educators the knowledge needed to successfully use educational gaming in their classroom."

Dr. Ruben Puentedura is the creator of the SAMR model for selecting, using, and evaluating technology in education, as well as a researcher in educational gaming and digital storytelling.
