"Everyone has the ability to help in some way, and even if you think you can’t create art, you can. Even if you think you can’t write, you can. Programming is a bit tricky, but with...a willingness to learn, you can whip up an interactive experience in no time. It’s sad to see so many people still believe they can’t make a game."

"I see much deeper and broader reasons for learning to code. In the process of learning to code, people learn many other things. They are not just learning to code, they are coding to learn."

I really encourage you to check out +Learning Games Network's #IWantPlayfulLearning  initiative. We're pushing for rigorous metadata and discussion on using games for learning, a thriving community built around it, and a user-facing interface that is both intuitive and playful.
