Better Chocolate Covered Broccoli
Recently, we discussed the difficulty of creating good "chocolate covered broccoli," presenting something educational as non-educational and hoping the student learns something from it. A new video game called "Valiant Hearts" attempts this with the subject of World War I and appears to be largely successful through the use of powerful imagery, a strong narrative and engaging puzzles that all teach about various aspects of World War I without feeling like a history lesson. The game is available on PC, Xbox and Playstation platforms and should be accessible to many students. Is this an effective learning tool? Discuss in the Vialogue below!
