Abstract (in English): 

The paper describes "an approach" to the design of learning environments that builds on the educational properties of games, but deeply grounds them within a theory of learning appropriate for an age marked by the power of new technologies.


Pull Quotes: 

Whereas schools largely sequester students

from one another and from the outside world,

games bring players together — competitively and

cooperatively — in the virtual world of the game

and in the social community of its players.
