In this video Katie Salen talks about the importance of play in learning. She explains how video games provide the right kind of learning environment for young people to develop the skills they need in the real world.

She goes on to discuss the importance of linking digital games to the curriculum and measuring the learning that takes place when playing games, as this can help us demonstrate their value to students, parents and colleagues.

Finally, she talks about some of the ways parents and teachers can support children when playing games, and recommends questions to ask students about games so we can learn from them.
