Brief history of video games

Posted on: August 16, 2013

It is Friday and time for something light.


Video source

Safwat Saleem created this wonderful animation that explores the origins and evolution of video games we know today.

Video games may have started in Science labs and military bases, but they have exploded almost everywhere else today. Everywhere except many classrooms.

But I expect that to change soon. I do not just hope that will change. I have taken action. I show teachers how you can use off-the-shelf games to teach just about anything.

It is not the game that determines or limits what is taught or learnt. It is the designer of the activity that does this.
