There is no lack of evidence for game-based learning, but important studies can often be overlooked. This series will offer highlights from researchers studying key aspects of games in the classroom and at home. Learn from reports about teachers’ perceptions of digital games, data capture through gameplay, principles for educational game development and video gaming as part of family routines. Researchers will answer questions from the audience to help apply their findings to specific challenges.
