      "If you wanted to create an educational environment that is directly opposed to what the brain is good at doing,  you would probably design something like the modern classroom."

      John Medina, Brain Rules

       

      The human brain loves patterns.  We see patterns all around, in everyday life, in nature, in man-made objects.

      Games-

      …provide structured  patterns

      …create emotional connections

      …encourage collaboration
