Welcome to Game Based Learning (GBL). Who would’ve thought that the the digital age would have brought us from the game of Pong to simulation games where one can fly an F-18 and carry out secret missions.

One of the reasons game based learning is used as a motivator is because it’s fun. So think back to when you last played a game. Then think about how much you learned. Now think about the possibilities when you think of the level of engagement you had with that game . . .
