    I think the best one of the Myths (in the presentation by Kristan and Melonie) is “The students are going to love this…” It says a lot about game-based learning Done Right. If the students end up struggling in the immersive environment, but then end up learning more, then the game was done right. The more I think about this, the more I think they are really onto something, and that there is very fertile ground for additional research here.
