There’s a clip from SXSW 09 on YouTube where Henry Jenkins is interviewed by The Guardian about learning from games. He says in the clip that every gmae has an online community and it’s there where people start to trade information and learn from each other. He also argues that there is a learning ecology that takes place outside of the classroom and that schools cut themselves off from this learning by blocking games and YouTube – leaving students disconnected with the best ways of learning. This hinders students from becoming technically literate and be prepared for the future.
