Kortrijk – 25 September 2014. The use of games in education has been a topic of discussion for many years – let alone their potential impact. The question that always comes back is whether (and how) playing and learning can be combined.

This is great news for teachers who would like to offer their course materials in an interactive manner. Moreover, it provides the gaming industry with a multitude of new opportunities.
