Learning Lab Denmark: Games as roadmaps to the knowledge society

Games allows one to practice in context: "Learning is placed in a context that the pupils find relevant. When they acquire new pieces of knowledge, they do so with the aim to use that knowledge in practice. The purpose of understanding the development stages of maggots, for instance, is to determine the time of death of a murder victim. The purpose of learning to do a chemical analysis of gunpowder residue is to determine who fired the weapon."
