I have been very curious lately about GBL… It is a bit controversial and perhaps hard to swallow as a certified teacher and graduate from an accredited college of education. As I dug deeper into what defines GBL, the basis of psychology, and pedagogical implementation techniques, I realized this was an amazing opportunity to alter the way I look at education! I have been reading up on the research of Dr. James Gee and following many a blog on the subject. Basically it boils down to individualized acquisition of knowledge and skills through an engaging and adaptive digital environment. Those are my words, of course, so I could be way off!
