Portfolio, thoughts and reflections
A talented data analysis & computing educator, a parent and a researcher who turned to game studies, design and development as a tool for engagement, motivation and learning. Having observed my children growing, playing games, and seeing what games can do to them (taking them away from me). I became intrigued & fascinated to explore these games, play them myself and try to understand them. The questions were, how can games be so immersive so intriguing? How can we integrate games into education and learning? What is it with games that we as educators, researchers or parents are missing? Let the playful gaming story and my journey begin. In this website you will find a wealth of educational resources (websites/ videos) for learning, fun and play. Whether you are looking for statistics, computing, games for learning or creative projects. You will find games that you can easily play yourself or share it with someone you know. Have a happy learning journey.
