Singularity Watch S01 E09 | Learning by playing… with Assassin’s Creed! with Simone Bregni

Who said that learning must be boring?

So, come and meet Simone Bregni, Associate Professor at the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at Saint Louis University, in Missouri! Using a videogame to teach a language may sound weird, but language learning and gaming have so much in common, especially when you can use great games such as the Assassin’s Creed saga, with its refined reconstruction of Renaissance Italy, or Ancient Egypt, and much more.

Sure, there are so many “serious games” designed specifically for learning, but the choice of Simone is to go with commercial games on gaming consoles and PCs. Why? Come with us on this journey, and you will discover how immersive games can take us to a new level in this domain!
