ENLACES (MINEDUC Chile) -OECD Expert Meeting on Videogames and Education
29-31 October, 2007, Santiago de Chile, Chile
This expert meeting, sponsored by the Chilean Ministry of Education and Enlaces will be devoted entirely to videogames and education. Videogames play an increasingly important role in young people’s lives and there is some evidence showing that they are becoming the preferred entertainment activity for youth in many OECD countries. What do we know about their effects? Can education systems learn something of practical value from videogame designers?
