Introduction

"I am always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught"
Winston Churchill

Indeed only one of many sharp quotations by Winston Churchill.

But isn't it so true for most of us?

If Churchill would have had known about computer games he might have recognised them as a great way of learning without being taught. Perhaps even as the ideal instrument to obtain knowledge.

Less than half a century after Churchill, there are many who advocate computer games' potential in a learning environment, and the variety of valuable knowledge and skills that they actually provide to the user. However, the majority of today's education methods fail to utilize much of their potential. Until now, we have not gone beyond Churchill's quotation, but it is definitely within reach.
