What do we mean by "games"? Here's a very useful discussion:

“Short-form games provide tools for practice
and focused concepts. They fit easily into the classroom
time period and are especially attractive to schools as
part of collections from which individual games can be
selected as curricular needs arise” (Richards, Stebbins,
& Mollering, 2013, p. 4), whereas longer-form games,
such as GlassLab’s SimCityEDU, “have a stronger
research base than short-form games and are focused
on higher order thinking skills that align more naturally
with new common core standards. These games do not
fit as easily into the existing school day or classroom
time period, but are the source of new experimentation
in the research community and a variety of school
contexts” (Richards, Stebbins, & Mollering, 2013, p. 4).

This is quoted from:
A REPORT OF THE A-GAMES PROJECT: ANALYZING GAMES FOR ASSESSMENT IN MATH, ELA/SOCIAL STUDIES, AND SCIENCE. Page 3.

Anybody out there interested in this discussion?]]>
