Game based learning is an ethos, not a tool that you buy, said Chris in our podcast. Still we pressed him for some recommendations. He also shared his insights about smartphones in school, and why banning them is a mistake.
Also a blogger and thought leader online, too, Chris is a great follow. Be sure to check out his profiles and chat with him.
