There is a growing interest in using computer games for language teaching and learning. An 'Escape the Room' game is a popular type of game in which the player has to find hidden objects, solve puzzles and
use logic to escape a room which he/she is trapped in. In this presentation, I'll be showing how this genre of online games can be used for effective language learning in different contexts (connected
classroom, computer room, homework), especially with young learners and teenagers. The session will be based on ideas from the Digital Play blog (http://www.digitalplay.info/blog).
