In game play, the progress a player makes is through learning. This happens as students grasp and understand embedded knowledge and skills required to successfully navigate a new system. The challenge and the progress of understanding a new concept through gaming is what makes a game enjoyable.

What do you want the students to learn? Educational game-play has defined learning outcomes. Keep this notion central to your planning when choosing or designing a game. Be sure students are appropriately challenged because a learner’s knowledge, understanding and skills can quickly bypass the educational benefit of a game!
