|Abstract: ||Because the goals of games and the object of school-based learning are fundamentally mismatched, efforts to integrate games into the curriculum have largely fallen flat despite the best intentions of teachers and the gaming industry. Arguing that educational game designers should be investigating ways to get education into games rather than getting games into education, Karl Royle describes how this might be accomplished. The discussion is contextualized by a brief outline of the shortcomings of video game usage within education. Royle demonstrates a link between the kind of learning that typically occurs in game playing and project-based learning and illustrates how curriculum-related learning material can be integrated into commercial-quality video games.|
