HOW This article explains how digital learning games, especially popular ones such as Minecraft, can help foster student-driven learning in the classroom. “When we provide students with resources and opportunities to let their interest drive the learning, students take ownership of their learning. Good games provide students with choice, which shapes the outcome. The learning is embedded in the game. Trial and error, or “failure,” are part of the process. Authentic learning is inherent in the process.”
