Why doesn't the real world seem more like an online game? In the best-designed games, our human experience is perfectly optimized: we have important work to do, we're surrounded by potential collaborators, and we learn quickly and in a low-risk environment. When we're playing a good online game, we get constant useful feedback, we turbo-charge the neurochemistry that makes challenge fun, and we feel an insatiable curiosity about the world around us. None of this is by accident. In fact, game developers have spent three decades figuring out how to make us happier and more collaborative, how to make learning more fun and social, and how to satisfy our hunger for meaning and success. And all of these game-world insights can be applied directly to amplify and augment the way we teach, learn, and do research in the real world. In this talk, you'll learn how online game methods and mechanics can transform our learning communities - and help re-invent higher education as we know it.

Dr. McGonigal is the Director of Game Research & Development at the Institute for the Future in Palo Alto, California.
