When you watch children play video games, have you ever thought about how the progress they make and the skill levels they attain can be linked to assessment – a vital ingredient in the teaching and learning process? It is clear that ‘learning’ is happening when children play games, but how is the assessment of this learning happening and what is it about the world of the video game that encourages and nurtures this apparent intrinsic motivation to improve performance?

He will also show how Scottish teachers have become central to the growth of games-based learning in schools.
