We as gamers can all look back into our past and remember a gaming session that was truly EPIC. Something happened in game to challenge you in a way or forced you to think about a problem differently. Even though the goal was just to have fun, that game helped you learn something new and engage the world with new skills.

Today we are joined Keven Ballestrini- the Co-founder of The Pericles Group, A company that publishes games to allow players to explore learning as a narrative.

On a personal note I think I'd like to explore how games can affect behavior and learning, both in an educational and professional setting. Its something that I'm passionate about and something that I'd like to explore further.

That being said, I'd love to hear from you. Let me know if there are any games that have affected your development or learning in someway OR what kind of things do you think GAMES can teach particularly well? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments or via email.
