The New York Times just published an article by Sara Corbett called Learning by Playing, on linking games with education. The article references directly and indirectly a lot of recent work that I was not aware of.

"going to school can and should be more like playing a game, which is to say it could be made more participatory, more immersive and also, well, fun."

"It is important to note that Quest is not a school where children spend their day playing commercial videogames. Instead Quest to Learn is a school that combines what researchers and educators know about how children learn best with the principles of game design to create highly immersive, content-rich game-like learning experiences in the classroom.
