The popularity of entertainment gaming over the last decades has led to the use of games for non-entertainment purposes in areas such as training and business support. The emergence of the serious games movement has capitalized on this interest in leisure gaming, with an increase in leisure game approaches in schools, colleges, universities and in professional training and continuing professional development. The movement raises many significant issues and challenges for us. How can gaming and simulation technologies be used to engage learners? How can games be used to motivate, deepen and accelerate learning? How can they be used to greatest effect in learning and teaching? The contributors explore these and many other questions that are vital to our understanding of the paradigm shift from conventional learning environments to learning in games and simulations.

'Digital Games and Learning represents a valuable snapshot of the current state of the field, one which builds on more than a decade of research on games-based learning, one which brings together both veterans and newcomers, one which is sure to spark more debates.'
Henry Jenkins, Provost's Professor of Communications, Journalism and Cinematic Art, University of Southern California, USA
'Digital Games and Learning is a much-needed addition to the burgeoning field of serious gaming. The book's emphasis on issues that matter to a wide range of stakeholders - from practitioners, to researchers, to policy-makers - asks us to look beyond departmental, institutional, and professional silos in order to advance practice, research, and theory.'
George Veletsianos, Assistant Professor of Instructional Technology, University of Texas at Austin, USA
Educational policy-makers and researchers in the area of digital learning and serious gaming will find this a valuable book to read. Jonathan C. Roach (St. Thomas University, FL), Teaching Theology & Religion"
