So here we are on day two of Handheld Learning 2008.
I am in the plenary session listening to Steven Berlin Johnson talking about technologies and how children learn through simulations.
Common theme so far seems to be about the innate way in which young children learn through the use of technology.
Talking about Civilisation, of which I played the original version, and how this very complicated game is being played by children who are learning while playing.
Some amusing observations from the game.
Moved onto the simplicity of Pac-Man versus the complex goals of Zelda.
Today’s games are a lot more complicated than the games from my generation.
