I wanted to share two podcasts that has been in heavy rotation on my devices. The first is MIT’s Game Design class that explores the ideas and process of game design. It is a fascinating look into the process that goes into good game design and provides a great anchor point for looking at how games connecting to learning.
The other podcast is Ludology that explores the large topic of the study of games. Each week they focus on a topic and try to explore it in depth. It is a great reflective piece that looks at the history, process and experiences of play.
If you have space in your listening rotation, I highly recommend either one of these great gaming resources.
