Gaming and motivation

I found these two articles while working on a lecture for game learning. The first talks about how motivation is a key factor in how we learn. It's an anecdotal account more than anything else, but it gives hope that there are schools who 'get it' and try to make child learning much more like adult learning in that it's based on point in time interest and passion. The second is something that I've been laughing about with friends for a while - especially when talking about distance based physical education (tongue firmly in cheek mind you) as a means of evaluation - Just get them to send in their Dance Dance Revolution scores!
