One of the buzzwords in education is gamification – using games to get people more engaged with what they are learning. Those studying history might be using the immersive games from Reacting to the Past, which gets students to work with primary sources and with each other. Danièle is joined by Kyle Lincoln to discuss his work with Reacting to the Past, how he is developing a game based on the Fourth Crusade.
You can learn more about Reacting to the Past from their website.
