Let me introduce you to Kurt Squire

Kurt Squire, a professor at the University of Wiscnosin-Madison within the School of Education's Department of Curriculum and Development, is a Co-Founder of the Games, Learning, and Society Group. Widely known within gaming circles with the likes of James Paul Gee and Constance Steinkuehler, Dr. Squire recently published his first book, Video Games and Learning:

"In many respects, the promise of video games is about realizing age-old visions of education proposed by Maria Montessori or John Dewy. However, digital media make new things possible-such as leading a Civilization game or collaborating in real time with people around the world. We need to rethink what we want out of education in the digital age" (2011, p. 15).
