Games as learning tools

To my posting on exploring wikis, Sandra commented that she was using a wiki and invited me to visit. I needed to follow her connection through MyBlogLog but I could not do that within my work environment. I did try technorati and other search options without success and then patiently waited until I got home to go to MyBlogLog.
Once there, getting the links to her blog and wiki were easy. I like what she writes here:
As adults, we want to learn stuff that is directly relevant, practical, and useful to resolving the real challenges we face in our work. We learn best by doing what matters to us personally. We want to build on what we already know, transfer our prior experience to a new situation, share what we know, find out what like-minded others know, and form connections. We want rapid feedback. We want to learn what we need to know right now, just in time to complete the task in front of us. We might need to know a little or a lot; either way, we want to decide what we learn, when, and how we learn it.
Does this ring a bell with you?
Does this stir your passion for learning?
Jump on over to check out the Joyful Jubilant Learning Network and see what "like-minded others" are attempting.
And if you have something that you have learned since October (or at least recently), please share it. Instructions on how to join our Thankful for learning Forum are here!

Hey Steve - sorry I made it so hard for you to find me. I guess I could just as easily included direct links to my blog:; and my wiki: (BUT I didn't want to appear pushy...) Anyway - I am now up on Technorati, soon to be bloglines. So I can be found by more and more like-minded folks, and I can find them, and our readers can see our connections and find us all, and reap the benefits.
