People don't realize that they are continuously learning. We learn from many sources outside of the classroom every day. We learn from other people, we learn from museums and television among a plethora of other places. Learning is not limited to the inside of the classroom.
I think the trick for those repelled by learning is to get them to learn without knowing that's what they're doing. They'll be less stressed and more likely to learn. That’s where educators have to become creative and where games can be so useful. Most everybody likes some kind of game. Television is full of different types of games and several are ranked high in the ratings. Many people play board games with families and friends. A lot of people go to Casinos to play games. So maybe for those who don't love the idea of learning we just need to hide the learning inside of some games. It’s kind of like hiding vegetables under a glop of melted cheese so your kids will eat them. They get all of the benefit without the constant battle. To me it’s a win win situation.
What do you think? Is concealing learning inside of games beneficial or deceitful?
