Gaming is all about being entertained and it cannot possibly be utilized for a serious pursuit of knowledge or the process of learning in a formal classroom environment, right? While it may seem that college students who are involved in playing a game during class time or their study time may not be learning, there are inherent qualities in a well-planned game that can increase motivation and engagement, along with improved cognition. The use of games to promote adult learning is not new. Games, game-like activities, and simulations have been used in corporate training classes and college classrooms for quite some time. What has changed is the use of technology to improve the design and content of educational games so that it engages students in a way that makes the learning process meaningful. Of course not all educators (or students) have embraced the idea of gaming in education.

Imagine if government agencies made social games. Who wouldn't enjoy the Federal Reserve's Asset-Backed SecuritiesVille , or the Census Bureau's World of FormCraft ? Maybe not.
Think back to the last time you played a game. What was the game? Why did you choose to play? Was it a simple game like tic-tac-toe, or something more complex, like Monopoly, Scrabble or Chess? Or maybe it was a game of basketball? Did you play with friends?
