  31. 31. Gaming tends to be regarded as a harmless diversion at best, a vile corruptor of youth at worst. But the usual critiques fail to recognize its potential for experiential learning. Unlike education acquired through textbooks, lectures, and classroom instruction, what takes place in massively multiplayer online games is what we callaccidental learning. Its learning to be - a natural byproduct of adjusting to a new culture - as opposed to learningabout. Where traditional learning is based on the execution of carefully graded challenges, accidental learning relies onfailure.Virtual environments are safe platforms for trial and error. The chance of failure is high, but the cost is low and the lessons learned are immediate. www.wired.com/wired/archive/14.04/learn.html 31
