Last night was a live webinar with Steve Hargadon and James Paul Gee on Video Games, Learning, and Literacy. (Recording to be published).

We've mentioned Gee's books here before, and it was interesting to hear him speak at this later date to a new audience. I didn't feel I learned much, nor did I feel that he convincingly reinforced what I thought I knew. Instead, I felt the opposite, a desire to push against gaming as learning.

Maybe it was Tuesday's Frontline: Digital Nation. Maybe it was because he had no convincing examples.
