From the website:

  • This week's Economist carried an interesting article about the use of video games at school. The article, Games Lessons, describes how Katie Salen, a games designer and professor of design and technology at Parsons The New School for Design, in New York, has taken the initiative in setting up Quest to Learn, "a new, taxpayer-funded school which is about to open its doors to pupils who will never suffer the indignity of snoring through double French but will, rather, spend their entire days playing games."
