A couple of links on games and how they may link to ESL/EFL teaching:
First, an article at Wired on the often overlooked positive effects of gaming.
And at Creating Passionate Users, Kathy Sierra asks What can we learn from game developers?. She has some interesting audio files on the subject, and the big winner concept is the idea of using levels to stimulate interest in users (or, for us teachers, students). Interesting, and I think I’ll devote a little thought to it.
