I’ve written a lot about how I use online video games with my English Language Learner students. I was originally inspired along this line by Graham Stanley and Kyle Mawer.
They’ve just begun a blog on this topic called Digital Play. They’ve just begun it, but I’m sure it will be great, and I’ve already added it to The Best ESL/EFL Blogs.
Using online games for language development? That’s definitely fresh to me, because most of the benefits I’ve read about online games are cognitive skills enhancement, hand and eye coordination and brain development.

Hey thanks for letting me know about Digital Play! I am going to try to build a special section for ESL folks on one of my gaming sites http://GameGab.com! My wife will be proud, she in an ESL teacher in Texas. Thanks again!
Thanks for the support, Larry – your site continues to be a source of inspiration!
