Videogames and Educationby Harry J. Brown
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Brown (English, DePauw U.) situates the video game within the broad perspective of the humanities. Broadly interested in the interrelations between the major trends in game design, the public controversies surrounding the video game, and the predominant critical positions in game studies, he explains the different contemporary perspectives on video games in terms of the impact of video games on literature and the visual arts; the politics, ethics, and myths of video games; and the role of video games in teaching history, community, and art. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Videogames challenge our notions of identity, creativity, and moral value, and provide a powerful new avenue for teaching and learning. This book is a rich and provocative guide to the role of interactive media in cultural learning. It searches for specific ways to interpret videogames in the context of human experience and in the field of humanities research.
