Games are an exciting yet controversial tool for learning and cognitive development. Daphne Bavelier, an expert in cognitive neuroscience, will describe how entertainment and action-packed video games, initially thought as mindless, can induce brain plasticity and a surprisingly vast array of improvements. Jan L. Plass, a scholar and designer of learning with simulations and games, will discuss how games need to be designed to be effective for learning and for development of cognitive skills. Both will present their research findings and then engage with the audience in a lively conversation.
