Abstract

This chapter explores the contribution that computer games and Web 2.0 technologies can provide in relation enhancing learner motivation and engagement. Such technologies are considered to be particularly suited to motivating the younger generation of learners or the “iLearner Generation”. The chapter will highlight some of the main advantages and problems associated with computer games in education, as well as highlighting a recent project, the Web 2.0 European Resource Centre, which is aimed at enabling the mass of educators who find ICT confusing and frightening to have a simple and secure environment to use Web 2.0 technologies within their class.
