Sims, Ants, Education, and Gaming

Heard this on the way into work this morning. Nothing like a conversation between Will Wright, creator of the Sims series, and E.O. Wilson, the world's most eloquent ant expert.

Wilson was especially provocative in his condemnation of the way we currently teach kids and his belief that the solution to so many of our educational disconnections lies in virtual reality and gaming.

Give it a listen as it's certainly something bound to cause debate in the current conversation on education.
