Have you ever wondered why video games can become potentially addictive? Is it the built-in reward system, the sense of satisfaction that gamers may not have in the real world. Video games can also be used in a positive educational format, which leads me to our podcast for today.
I will be talking with my good mate New Zealand super star teacher Carl Condliffe. Carl has established himself as a world leader in mixing gamification and education together. Today he will talk about his experience as a professional gamer, where he was flown all over the globe competing in gaming tournaments, right through to been an elite athlete as part of the New Zealand bobsled team.
