  • Very brief to fit in the 7 slide limit
  • Design elements in Angry Birds spark positive influences for skill acquisition. Players can jump right in with little to no learning curve, follow multiple paths to success, and are offered incentives toward productivity.
  • A game can’t stand alone by itself. Students must have guidance.
  • Students can learn about gravity… etc. as well as explain their thought process and reasoning.

  • Slideshare already has more detailed explanations of why and how to use video games to enhance education.
