Hi, Mary:
This is an interesting article, thanks for sharing. As a student, I believe that students will be higly motivated if they can learn through playing game.In addition, the simulated environment provided by educational games offer students great opportunities to apply what they have learned in class. Do you know where I can download a free version to play with? I failed to find any link allowing me to do that. Thanks you again for sharing!
