I am a big proponent that learning should be fun. After all, learning should be reinforcing rather than aversive, making the students want to learn more. Recently, there has been a great amount of research in using games (video games, board games, and computer games) in the classroom to facilitate learning.
This is not the first year I have attended the San Diego Comic Con but it is the first year that I am THIS thrilled to attend. Above all panels, the one that I am most looking forward to is the Geek Therapy panel, scheduled to take place on Thursday at 12:00 pm in room 26 AB, where most of the magical geeky-nerdy stuff to do with psychology and geek culture will take place.
