“Learning is a deep human need, like mating and eating, and like all such needs it is meant to be deeply pleasurable to human beings.”
James Paul Gee, Why Video Games Are Good for Your Soul: Pleasure and Learning

“An academic discipline, or any other semiotic domain, for that matter, is not primarily content, in the sense of facts and principles. It is rather primarily a lived and historically changing set of distinctive social practices. It is in these practices that 'content' is generated, debated, and transformed via certain distinctive ways of thinking, talking, valuing, acting, and, often, writing and reading.”
James Paul Gee, What Video Games Have to Teach Us about Learning and Literacy

“Our world is now so complex, our technology and science so powerful, and our problems so global and interconnected that we have come to the limits of individual human intelligence and individual expertise.”
James Paul Gee, The Anti-Education Era: Creating Smarter Students through Digital Learning
